The AMASS (Avian Migration Aerial, Surface, Space) research project, also known as “Space for Birds”, examines the migratory pathways of seven threatened and endangered avian species, integrating art and science in photography to stimulate a connection to the natural world. AMASS is inspired by the natural phenomena of avian migration coupled with Dr. Bondar’s lifelong passion for flight and her view of Earth from space and through a camera lens. Photographs from the surface, air (aerial), and the ultimate wide-view, space, work together in a layered perspective to emphasize the global scale of the birds’ movements and highlight the importance of protecting their habitats.
We would like to thank our supporters in this project for making AMASS / Space for Birds possible!
