On this World Migratory Bird Day, we are delighted to be sharing our new Wildlife Jewels® Migratory Birds Collection and the story of the birds that inspired each design! We are delighted to have had the pleasure of seeing and photographing these precious birds during their stop in Southern California.
Migratory birds are precious and beautiful birds, with fascinating science-fiction like behaviors, yet sadly they are in great danger and their populations are dramatically decreasing due to major threats from human activities.
Major threats to migratory birds include: habitat destruction, petrochemical pollution, fishing gear, hunting, wildlife crime and cruelty acts such as (getting shot at with pellet guns, wrapped in fishing line, wing dislocation), overfishing, drones and unleashed dogs, getting run over by motor vehicles, light pollution, oil spills, glass windows and skyscrapers, chemical pollution, and so much more...
Wildlife Jewels Rubellite the Elegant Tern
This is a series of fashion designs and decor based off of Azi's original painting which takes inspiration from a precious Elegant Tern who was a victim of the tragic incident that occurred in June 2021 caused by a drone crash and forced over 3,000 Elegant Terns to abandon their eggs. Thousands of Elegant terns including chicks as young as one week old ended up on two barges in Long Beach Harbor and were spotted falling off the barges. This beautiful Elegant Tern was lucky to have been rescued and rehabilitated.
