Abstract / Summary

Abstract.

An enquiry into the impact the Illustrator can have in raising awareness of the issue of conservation of endangered species of birds. This paper examines collaborations between Illustrators, Artists and organizations including Ghosts Of Gone Birds, The RSPB, Birdlife International and Operation Turtle Dove and documents the outcomes of collaborative events that were undertaken by participants mentioned earlier. The enquiry will explore how primary research conducted at the annual Spring Hunt in Malta has lead to new knowledge and understanding of a challenging political issue and how further connections can be made and activities undertaken which can be catalysts for change.
