The surface perspective allows the Space for Birds project to capture the morphology and behavioural patterns of our focal species such as their position in the food web, their flight silhouettes, family structures, and plumage colouring. This gives us insight into the species’ way of life.
The aerial perspective in the Space for Birds project presents a full view of the habitats in which these focal species thrive, as well as the threats they face that may lead to their further endangerment. The condition of their habitats are imperative to the survival of these avian species.
The space perspective allows the Space for Birds project to demonstrate the great migration scale of these birds as well as critical habitat areas such as stopover, wintering, and breeding sites. These images are taken by astronauts like Dr. Roberta Bondar from space shuttles and the International Space Station.
