Presentation by Jane Kim, artist and founder of Ink Dwell studio
A spectacular 3,000 square-foot mural covering an entire wall of the Cornell Lab of Ornithology Visitor Center is nearly complete. In this presentation, artist and founder of Ink Dwell studio Jane Kim will discuss her two-and-a-half-year process leading to the creation of this modern masterpiece. Her work showcases 271 species from all modern bird families and their prehistoric ancestors painted in exacting detail.
is one of the greatest challenges for conservation in a changing world. Ancient flyways extend thousands of miles, some across entire hemispheres. How can we protect a moving target? The challenge is made greater by poor information about movements of species and habitat availability, a lack of efficient and adaptable conservation tools, and the high cost of implementation at meaningful scales. Speakers Brian Sullivan from the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and Mark Reynolds from The Nature Conservancy will explain how the recent availability of large-scale data, from citizen science to remote sensing, is improving our ability to develop effective conservation strategies for bird migrations. Find out how the Cornell Lab’s eBird program worked in partnership with The Nature Conservancy to develop precision science tools to create temporary bird habitat on farmland in California when and where birds need it most.The project has partnered with more than 200 farmers, creating more than 30,000 acres of high-quality bird habitat, demonstrating a cost-effective way for farmers to help protect the Pacific Flyway.
