Olivia's Birds Saving the Gulf
One 11 year-old girl can make a difference-as budding ornithologist and artist Olivia Bouler has proven, raising over $150,000 for Audubon’s Gulf oil spill recovery efforts. Devastated by the disaster and eager to do her part, Olivia wrote a letter to Audubon, “11 years old and willing to help” offering her own bird paintings to raise contributions for Gulf recovery efforts. The idea took flight, and Olivia proceeded to send out over 500 paintings, many of which are captured in this picture book that recaps her valiant campaign to save birds affected by the spill.
Written in her own words, this unique introduction to backyard and endangered birds features Olivia's hand-drawn illustrations, bird facts, and full-color photos. Published in collaboration with Audubon, Olivia's Birds features an introduction by our own Dr. Steve Kress and is printed on FSC paper.
