For four years, from January 2017 to January 2021, writer and publisher Martin Rowe documented the state of the United States and the world—using the verse form of ottava rima. In June 2019, he dedicated thirty of those verses to two extraordinarily compelling and distressing photographs of animals in extremis taken by Canadian photojournalist Jo-Anne McArthur. Now expanded to include more verses and more of McArthur’s stunning images, The Animals Are Leaving Us forms a testament to the particular moments in the lives and deaths of individual creatures, and a requiem for the many billions of animals who are subject to the cruel whims of our species, and who are vanishing from the wild places of the Earth.
