Art helps save the Albatross

October 17, 2010

Albatross Task Force member, and regular Cape Town Pelagics guide, Meidad Goren describes his experiences with artist Bruce Pearson.

“For four days Bruce was painting his heart out. He was able to directly observe the gannets diving at the nets, the albatrosses fighting for food and how we collect the data on bird mortality and fishing operations. By the end of the trip Bruce was happy with the results. Together with his Richards Bay work in the harbour and the sea trip he had enough material to go back to the studio and start working towards the main objective; the production of a book and an exhibit which will raise funds for albatross conservation.”
