An exhibition of photographs celebrating Australia’s iconic, vulnerable and endangered birds and their homes by Angela Robertson-Buchanan opens in Sydney on Thursday.

On display at The Corner Gallery,  Percival Rd & Myrtle St., Stanmore (Sydney) it will run until 24 October, with opening times on Wednesdays from 5-8 pm, Thursdays and Fridays between 11 am and 5 pm and weekends from 10 am to 3 pm. Angela Robertson-Buchanan is an award-winning photographer who specialises in bird photography and has published a number of books. The images on display will show how deforestation, urbanisation and climate change are modifying the places they call home. In Australia, numerous species that have not yet become rare enough to be listed as endangered, described as common or of least concern, are having their habitat chipped away at equally alarming rates as Australia’s endangered species.

These species have not only intrinsic ecological value, but also have the right to exist. Common species are also the ones that we most associate with and because they are more abundant and familiar, they provide important opportunities for people to connect with nature.

20% of sales will be donated to BirdLife Australia, exhibition runs alongside National Bird Week, an initiative to get more Australian’s interested in birds
