Episode #169 | Earl James | Life Cairns

A Life Cairn is raised in recognition and honour of all the species of flora and fauna - mammals, marsupials, birds, reptiles, amphibians, fish, insects, crustaceans, arachnids, trees, lichens and plants of all kinds, that have been rendered extinct at human hands.

Life Cairn memorials are structures of local stone piled up and laid together. The are traditionally built on mountain peaks and on top of hills.
