Birding the future: Messages of migration, connectivity and extinction

Male cardinal bird standing on arched metal pieceIt is estimated that almost a third of all bird species will have disappeared by the end of this century. What might happen in the future as messages of birds are increasingly silenced? How can art be a voice for conservation? Declining bird populations in practically all habitat types signal profound changes over our entire planet, changes that affect our ecologically-bound cultural identities. Join artist-researchers Krista Caballero and Frank Ekeberg on Tuesday, May 28, 2019 from 4:00 to 5:30 p.m. at the Desert Botanical Garden for a talk titled "Birding the future: Messages of migration, connectivity and extinction." This initiative is an interdisciplinary project exploring avian migrations, extinction and the warning abilities of birds.
