This burial, “Silent Spring” aims to illustrate the sacredness and fragility of life. It is a devotion to the importance of the lives of our birds and their role in our ecosystem.
The bird’s eulogy speaks of the devastation the birds have endured, due to; habitat loss, deadly pesticides, illegal killing, and climate change. In the wake of a silent spring, humans need to act as a voice to the birds who are rapidly being silenced.
