Towards Dystopia explores two islands (both of which I have visited) namely the Galapagos Islands and Lord Howe Island. Both groups of Islands are World Heritage listed with tourism restrictions and so should have in place mechanisms to maintain the best possible environmental future. This work explores how these two islands are impacted on by the Anthropocene and generally how humans are impacting on the biosphere.
