Ecosystems work in a relational, and closed looped systematic way that allows for organisms to thrive, feed, and reproduce while creating a balance amongst diverse species. When this balance is affected by an extinction, or decline in the population of one organism the system has to rebalance itself, and all other organisms are affected as a result. Scalloped hammerhead sharks are one of the top predators, and organisms that served to keep the marine ecosystem in a state of equilibrium by maintaining the species under them in the food change. The state of oceanic health can be determined by the health, and population of these organisms because if there population declines a vast number of other organisms, and micro-botanics would overpopulate. This role of keeping the balance between competitors ensures an increase of diversity between species. Scalloped hammerheads are listed on the World Conservation Union's Red List as an endangered species, due to an increase demand for their fins, and underdeveloped regulations on industrial fishing. During the summer months large schools of sharks gather to mate in warmer waters, and because of their large populations, fishermen have also capitalised own this gathering to capture large quantities in a short time. This influx, and imbalance in relation to the quantity, and time in which they are captured causes detrimental effects to marine life. Often times only the fin is cut, and the shark is thrown back into the ocean. The anatomical structure of the hammerhead shark  only allows them to breathe when they are in a swimming motion. Unlike other shark species, if they stop swimming they risk the possibility of drowning, and without there fin this is the fate of their existence. This arena design, and interior aims to bring awareness about marine life, and how overfishing, and regulatory neglect has caused an imbalance, and population decreases in Scalloped Hammerheads. Marine ecosystems have been wasted, and left to decay while actively still causing damage to the coral through ocean acidification or “Blue Blood”. How can design work to reinterpret these issues though public anaerobic engagement?  This design method aims to use design as a tool to discuss medallions of epistemic environmental endangerment.
