ALAS & COLORES: A MONTH TO APPRECIATE IMAGES THAT INVITE YOU TO PROTECT THE BIRDS OF HISPANIOLA
SANTO DOMINGO, D.R..- For a full month, students and the population in general will be able to learn and admire the beautiful plumage and physical features of the bird species endemic to our Hispaniola island, just a stroll away. The exhibit “Alas & Colores” is on display in Parque Independencia.
The exhibit is part of the educational project “Alas & Colores: Native Birds of Hispaniola”, developed by the asset management firm INICIA. The exhibit highlights the importance of the native birds of the Dominican Republic and their current state of peril. The work is composed of a compendium featuring 30 photos by six renowned photographers: Eladio Fernández, Mario Dávalos, Dax Román, Guillermo Armenteros, Rafael Arvelo and Miguel Landestoy. Also, a collection of 30 illustrations by American artist Alex Warnick.
The images will be on display until June 15th. In the maps, viewers will be able to appreciate their area of location, their type of natural habitat, their current state of peril and scientific information.
Felipe Vicini, Managing Partner of INICIA, stressed that this exhibit seeks to raise awareness among the Dominican population, about the importance of preserving these birds. “Many of these birds are under extremely perilous situations, and it is up to us to protect and preserve them; authorities and civil society alike, we must join forces and promote initiatives set on protecting their natural habitat from being destroyed”, Vicini said.
The expo inauguration was also headed by Mayor David Collado. Also present were public office representatives, asides businesspersons and part of the expo developers. Collado thanked the initiative, because, in his own words, “they contribute to bringing the city to life, offer greater educational and cultural learning opportunities for the capital’s population and its visitors”.
“It is an honor, that for its second year-in-a-row, INICIA carries out these cultural exhibits open to the enjoyment of all our citizens”, Collado said. He also added that the exhibit offers a space where you can grow in knowledge, and at the same time enjoy an activity that is sound and suitable for the entire family”.
