AFC Flag Expedition

In 20015, David was awarded the first fellowship grant under the AFC's Flag Expeditions Program for his proposal "Expedition to Observe and Portray the Endangered Harpy Eagle and its Habitat". Following what is likely the most extensive artistic study of the Harpy Eagle ever attempted, the resulting artwork will be used to support conservation efforts to restore the Harpy Eagle to its historical ranges, while helping to educate the public on the key role this species plays in the maintenance of a healthy ecosystem.
