Visual arts for threatened British birds


This 14 February 2020 video says about itself:

‘Red Sixty Seven’ seeks to raise awareness of declining birds and secure additional funds for BTO and RSPB scientists to carry out important research, work that should help to address the causes of decline. The project takes its name from the UK Red List of Birds of Conservation Concern, which currently contains 67 species.

An artwork has been produced for each species, together with a written piece by some of the UK’s leading writers. The artworks are being sold to raise funds, through 67 ‘tickets’ sold in January and guaranteeing the purchaser an artwork, determined by the drawing of lots. Find out more here.
