About this Event:
Saturday 5th June, 2021 – World Environment DayOn World Environment Day we celebrated the Australian launch of Central Coast artist, Alison Jane Rice’s latest picture book BIRDS GO BOHO in the Conservatory of Bells at Killcare. Set in the fictional village of Bouddi Bay it set tongues a-twitter! A vital conservation Birdlife project was a program highlight, with live webcam of a pair of White-bellied Sea-Eagles.
Ali’s donated etching LEDA & THE SWAN passed its auction reserve and the successful bid raised funds to benefit the Bouddi Society (incorporating the Bouddi Foundation for the Arts). Her Artist Edition of BIRDS GO BOHO sold out with a generous percentage of book sales donated to Birdlife Australia. “Over 1,450 bird species are globally threatened and 222 Critically Endangered birds face an extreme risk of extinction … so for me the night was a resounding success!” remarked Ali. “BIRDS GO BOHO has finally flown the coop and the time has come to act for birds. Globally, all birds need our protection.“
