Language of Conservation
Language of Conservation
Find poems that celebrate the natural world at Audubon Zoo! As part of the "Language of Conservation" project Audubon introduced poetry installations into the Zoo's landscape on May 15, 2010. Look for writings hanging from above, etched around a garden or standing under a tree!
Language of Conservation is an initiative funded by the Institute for Museum and Library Services and led by Poets House in partnership with the New Orleans Public Library. The program is designed to deepen public awareness and appreciation of environmental issues through poetry. To help Audubon with this monumental task the Language of Conservation project assigned poet Mark Doty as Audubon Zoo's new Poet in Residence.
Mark Doty, Audubon Zoo’s Poet in Residence, is a Tennessee native and the 1995 winner of the T.S. Elliot Award for Poetry. Doty has been getting to know Audubon’s animals and learning about our conservation initiatives as he develops unique poetry installations that will be featured in and around signature Zoo exhibits. He has spent the last year visiting the Zoo and collaborating with wildlife biologists and exhibit designers to help Audubon celebrate the spirit of conservation through the poetry installations.
