Saving the World’s Rare Birds through Art
Join us May 12 for a special presentation by renowned artist and conservation activist, David Tomb, founder of Jeepney Projects (JPW). JPW partners with regional conservation groups to support and help threatened and endangered birds. The aim is to celebrate these birds and raise global awareness of their conservation needs through exhibitions featuring original work by artist. Additionally, JPW raises targeted conservation funds for these birds through sales of fine art prints. Each project advocates for a particular species and the habitat that it represents. JPW hopes to inspire people to learn more about these unique and irreplaceable creatures, and find solutions to prevent their demise. As a birding enthusiast, David Tomb is at the forefront of this endeavor. Current projects include supporting conservation groups working on behalf of the Philippine Eagle, Mexico’s Tufted Jay and Horned Guan, and Ghana’s amazing Picathartes. David’s talk will highlight the genesis of Jeepney Projects in the Philippines as well as our ongoing work worldwide.
