Birdtown – A BirdLife Australia Bird Week Exhibition by Photographer Angela Robertson-Buchanan, Printmaker Fiona Roderick and Designers from Eggpicnic.
This exhibition celebrating our urban birdlife will be on display at the Corner Gallery from Wednesday 22nd October to Sunday 1st November.
With more than 80% of Australia’s population living in cities, it might not feel like there’s much room for nature. But a stroll through any Australian city proves there’s no need to go bush to get in touch with wildlife.
However, with rapid urbanisation, they face a great challenge. Many Australian bird species are declining in urban areas and declining overall.
It’s more important than ever to research, protect and provide education on the urban birds that surround us. Now more than ever, on behalf of the living world, we need to feel like we belong here, on the planet. That this is our home, but it is not ours alone.
20% of sales will be donated to BirdLife Australia, exhibition runs alongside National Bird Week, an initiative to get more Australian’s interested in birds. https://aussiebirdcount.org.au
