From one of the March 27th participants:
It was my first time on ZOOM, too.
Of course, I was a bit overwhelmed by the screen and knowing how to use it.
However, (and of course AFTER) I came up with all sorts of Educational ideas for saving the Helmeted Hornbill, but (as I can conceive it as a visual artist) they all require visual and technical, on site work in the affected areas.. Education of the public to recognize both visually and aurally, ad create the aspect of love and protection for this bird in both the proximate areas where it needs protection as well as worldwide, so that the poaching and carved pieces cannot be traded. Much like the Black Rhino, or elephant tusks…..
Huge, informational murals on buildings – cities, towns, busses. Bus stops sculpted to look like Hornbills, with wings outstretched to protect those underneath, while being protected (hopefully, through education and recognition of the creature) by those sheltered by it…… ok. And amplify & project the Hornbill song, to indicate an oncoming bus, (rather like the bells in foreign subways or light rail in Denver). That’s just a few… I just really don’t know how One Voice 4 Change can facilitate this or help make it possible.
