The 'Audubon Mural Project' is a street art initiative that aims to raise awareness about endangered birds. Although many people are aware of climate change, not everyone understands how it impacts different animal species. This project uses beautiful street art as a way of drawing attention to climate-threatened birds.

The Audubon Mural Project is part of a joint partnership between the National Audubon Society and the 'Gitler &_____ Gallery.' According to the project's website, the initiative was launched as "an audacious and unconventional scheme for spreading the word about the plight of birds." In order to capture the public's attention, the organizers decided to use street art to highlight each of the avian species endangered by climate change. In total, the project aims to cover 314 different species.

While the project is still underway, the works that have already been completed are truly striking.
