Last year i was asked to contribute a piece of artwork to be included in a book to raise awareness of the current most at risk birds and secure funds for the British Trust of Ornithology ( BTO ) and RSPB scientists to carry out important research, work that should help to secure a future for these species. The book features 67 Red Listed birds each illustrated by a different artist and a personal story from a diverse collection of writers. Their hope is that the book will bring the Red List to a wider audience whilst raising funds for the charities working to help the bird most at need.
All of the artists and writers have contributed their work for free. The 67 artworks will also be sold as part of a project called 67 ‘Lucky Dip’ tickets. By purchasing one of the 67 tickets you are guaranteed to receive one of the original artworks and limited edition prints, but you will not know which one until entries are drawn out of the hat on 14th February. This is the link all about the project-
Its such an amazing project and so important to protect our birds, it would be amazing if you could purchase a book or a ‘lucky dip’ ticket. Here is the link to buy the book –
