NSW: Birdtown – A BirdLife Australia Bird Week Art Exhibition – Sydney
October 22, 2020 @ 5:00 pm - November 1, 2020 @ 5:00 pmFree
This exhibition celebrates our urban birdlife.
With more than 80% of Australia’s population living in cities, it might not feel like there’s much room for nature. But a stroll through any Australian city proves there’s no need to go bush to get in touch with wildlife.
However, with rapid urbanisation, they face a great challenge. Many Australian bird species are declining in urban areas and declining overall.
Its more important than ever to research, protect and provide education on the urban birds that surround us. Now more than ever, on behalf of the living world, we need to feel like we belong here, on the planet. That this is our home, but it is not ours alone.
