With the third World Albatross Day not too far away now, ACAP is marking the days until 19 June with a daily artwork posted to the Home Page, with a different ACAP-listed species featured each day.  The series commences with the Endangered Amsterdam Albatross Diomedea amsterdamensis and continues in alphabetical order to end with the Vulnerable White-chinned Petrel Procellaria aequinoctialis during ‘WADWEEK2022’ (13-19 June).

The 31 chosen artworks (from over 500) come from three fruitful collaborations with Artists and Biologists Unite for Nature (ABUN) over the last three years.

With grateful thanks to ABUN Co-founder Kitty Harvill and all the ABUN artists for their ongoing support of albatross and petrel conservation
