Earlier in the year, Emma Bowring, a young British artist asked permission to use photos from the Silent Forest website as models to paint.
She wanted to take part in a project being undertaken by “Artists for Conservation”: a 100 ft mural of 8in x 8in canvasses featuring 678 endangered birds of the world!
The mural was used as the centerpiece of the 27th International Ornithological Congress taking place in August 2018 in Vancouver, before going tour internationally
Any money raised from the project, including sale of the paintings will go towards conservation projects.
Emma very kindly sent us pictures of the beautiful Nias Hill Myna and Straw Headed Bulbul that she painted, as well as photos of the mural.
Thank you for sharing with us another great contribution to Wildlife conservation!
