The LIFE+ project, ‘Save the Raptors’, which was carried out by the Bulgarian Society for the Protection of Birds, has recently launched a video on the Eastern imperial eagle (Aquila heliaca) and the communication of its conservation needs through contemporary art.
A giant 20 m graffiti artwork was created recently on the front wall of a public school at the very heart of Sofia, Bulgaria’s capital city, as part of a charitable initiative featuring four graffiti artists. The impressive mural tells the story of the globally endangered eagle species. Only 23 pairs of this majestic bird remain, and these are found in remote regions of Sakar and West Strandja in southeast Bulgaria.
With initiatives such as the one undertaken in co-operation with a school, the Bulgarian Society for the Protection of Birds is aiming to reach young audiences and to leave a long-lasting legacy for the LIFE+ ‘Save the Raptors Project’. The giant graffiti is visible to everyone who walks by the school building.
