“Those of us in the First World are able to go to a lot of places.We swing in wide migratory arcs, growing familiar with a widerworld, establishing homes in the places where we land for a while. For the first time in history it’s possible that we conceptualize theEarth in a way similar to that of migratory birds. It’s a shame to thinkthat this moment, when we understand these birds more than ever,corresponds with their decline.” – George Boorujy from the New York
