During January and February this year ACAP collaborated with Artists & Biologists Unite for Nature (ABUN) on its 35th Project entitled “Painting Petrels in Peril to paint or draw the nine ACAP-listed petrels and shearwaters (click here).  The petrel project followed on from ACAP’s first – and successful - collaboration with ABUN last year to produce artworks of the world’s 22 species of albatrosses in support of the inaugural World Albatross Day on 19 June.  The 2021 petrel project resulted in over one hundred artworks produced by 50 ABUN artists, roughly half of which may be viewed on this website, along with posters suitable for downloading and printing.

To round off the project, ABUN’s Co-founder, Kitty Harvill has used the artworks and photos to produce a collage poster and a video, the latter with evocative music by John Nicolosi of Niko Records Studio accompanying 105 petrel artworks
