Audubon Mural Project Raises Awareness For Endangered Birds Through Colorful Murals in Washington Heights

The Audubon Mural Project is a great project to help raise awareness for endangered and climate-threatened species of birds by painting massive colorful murals throughout founder John James Audubon’s old Manhattan neighborhood of Washington Heights.

In this latest piece by muralist Lunar New Year, several species of birds are presented, most notably the Swallow-Tailed Kite.

It’s a depiction of urgency, showing 12 bird species under threat of extinction due to climate change. The composition plays homage to Audubon’s work by replicating his Swallow-Tailed Kite painting that encapsulates the flock of endangered birds.
