”Birds are some of the few animals still living in our cities, and I began this project because I thought that it was important to make sure that they can continue living here , and about reminding the world that it’s important to leave room for birds in urban areas.,” said Dambo.
”People always ask me if birds use the houses. My answer is that birds move into the houses if there are birds in the area, so birds will not move into the houses if they are hung on a light pole next to a noisy road. But they will do it in a tree in a park. The project is both about creating a shelter for birds, and also about reminding us that it’s important to leave room for birds in the urban world,” Dambo added.
