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
David’s talk will highlight the genesis of Jeepney Projects in the Philippines as well as our ongoing work worldwide.
Monthly meetings of the Monterey Peninsula Audubon Society are free.
Members and non-members are welcome! Meetings are held at the Pacific
