ABOUT THE ART

These cormorants are native to the northwestern coast of America and are some of the best diving seabirds in the world. They are inadvertently being fed so well by our local fish hatcheries (which mankind created as a solution to our own problem of over-fishing salmon), that they left their nesting grounds in Washington and British Columbia to live here on the Columbia River between the Oregon and Washington state borders. Being targeted by local groups due to the fact that they consume about 20% of the fish released into the Columbia from nearby fisheries, the federal government has stepped in with a plan to terminate over 50% of their population, whether it is shooting the birds or greasing their eggs so they cannot hatch their young. We have over 30,000 cormorants locally, and population control may sadly come into effect soon. It is a harsh reality of human interference with the environment. They truly are the innocent ones.

Thank you, Curt. These cormorants are being targeted by local groups due to the fact that they consume about 20% of the fish released into the Columbia from nearby fisheries. They have been fed so well that they left their nesting grounds in Washington and BC to live here. We have over 30,000, and population control may sadly come into effect soon. It is a harsh reality of human interference with the environment. They truly are innocent.
