I came across a lovely site, Ghosts of Gone Birds. It is all about creatively helping keeping endangered birds from becoming extinct. What a group of fantastic forward thinkers! The purpose of their site, in their words:
We are raising a creative army for conservation through a series of multimedia exhibitions and events that will breathe artistic life back into extinct birds species. Ghosts Of Gone Birds celebrates their diversity thru paintings & sculpture, talks & poetry, installations & live music. Plus a series of Ghosts stories that shed light on front line conservation work being done around the world to prevent any more birds migrating to gone status.
Ghosts of Gone Birds will raise money and awareness for BirdLife International’s Preventing Extinctions programme.
And the paintings are absolutely stunning, as you can see with the painting of the Laughing Owl above.
