In Tasmania, once, if you were lucky, you might see a flock of small birds, iridescent green with flashes of red under their wings, catapult across a blue sky searching for flowering gums. They could be observed foraging in tree canopies in noisy groups with other birds seeking the nectar from eucalypts. They are no longer in abundance and critically endangered due to habitat loss and predation by the introduced sugar glider in its Tasmanian breeding range.
The Endemic swift parrot is just one of many species falling away in the game of life… not winning.
How can we help to rescue these precious gems of nature?
Being drawn to the symbolism of nature’s symmetry from ancient times has been considered a sign of connecting to the divine. The spiral pattern is one of the most common in nature, from the spiral of a nautilus shell to whirlpools in water and to the spiral form of galaxies like our Milky Way.
Ancient Celtic culture is part of many people’s heritage. You see it here in my design, the Celtic spirals double and triple, part of my ancestral story.
Is it the sun, the centre, the source of all life’s energy, ever spiraling outward to sustain life on earth? Let’s help, do one thing, some thing, to make the spiral represent change, development, rebirth of the Swift Parrot and others.
It’s a small thing we can do during an age of climate change, mass species decline and habitat loss.
