MIGRATORY – According to birdlife.org and other researches, two thousand species of birds, 20% of all known species, make regular seasonal movements. Many travel thousands of miles between their breeding places and their wintering grounds. More than 40% of these migratory species are declining, and nearly 200 are now classified as globally threatened.
Migratory birds are being hit hard when they are most vulnerable. After very long journeys they face countless dangers. These may include the destruction and degradation of natural habitats, the loss of critical stopover sites such as coastal wetlands, illegal killing, poisoning, pollution, and collisions with badly-sited infrastructure such as power lines and wind turbines.
We have identified the sectors that affect migratory birds the most have been identified as those of agriculture, energy, hunting, tourism and waste management.
With all this in mind, the artist seek to exhibit through exposition of painting of Migration to highlight the need to protect lives discuss as we all including stakeholders, government agency and the world as a whole to initiate significant steps in controlling and reducing the illegal killing of migratory lives.
We all have the responsibility to protect our natural species and environment. Their reductions affect the ecosystem which we form part as humans.
