Here Be Dragons refers to the illustrations of mythological creatures on early maps to indicate dangerous, unexplored or uncharted regions. This triptych of three “dragons” represent land, water and air. However, the real danger is not from but, rather, to these regions of earth and the species that live in them. The culprits, i.e. dragons, are humans who are exacting untold damage from unchecked population growth, pollution and climate change.
