Early Birds: Extinctions

2 June, 2020 - 16 June, 2020

June 2, 5, 9 and 16 at 5 p.m.

With Manuel Antonio González

Throughout four online sessions we will get to know the birds that go through the most dangerous situations and that border on extinction. We will study some species the extinction has robbed us of forever. We will also know of successful cases in which, after brushing against disappearance and thanks to human work, some species of birds have recovered.

Through the daily walks that we are now allowed to do, we will learn to identify the birds that surround us. We will use tools available to everyone and adapted to each person’s abilities: detailed descriptions, drawings, sighting locations, etc., to create our own field notebook. Afterwards, we will make a collective map based on our routes and the identified birds.

“Extinctions” will be the beginning of a more extensive project in which, working from home, we will seek relationships between the extinction of birds and the changes that the planet is undergoing.

The workshop is aimed at adults, although they can do the workshop with the people they live with (minors included).

We will need an enrollment for each group of people who want to participate (see the form on this same page from May 14).

The theoretical sessions will be online (approx. 75 min.) And there will also be independent work between them, to be done at home.

We will use the JITSI video conferencing platform, providing all the help needed. Before the workshop, we will send a link for the participants to access the class from a computer.

Knowledge of any computer tool is not necessary.
