Bird Glamour and Fridays for Future: Project Mushroom Latest

What's happening in Project Mushroom?🍄

Hey shroomies!

Today in the Project Mushroom community, I’d love to introduce you to Lisa Buckley’s Bird Glamour.

Lisa is a Vertebrate Paleontologist who uses makeup to teach us about birds. If you ask her what her favourite dinosaur is, she’ll tell you it’s the owl. She posts regularly in Project Mushroom, sharing her impressively accurate and playful make-up creations and posing cheekily alongside her chosen bird’s natural habitat. Proof that science communication doesn’t have to be dry or boring — it can be joyful as well.

You can find her website and Patreon here.

The future is still striking

The Fridays for Future has announced that their next global day of action is on March 3rd, 2023 — this Friday. Fridays for Future remains one of the more accessible forms of climate protest, it’s one of the movements I started with when I began organizing. You can bring some friends, make some signs, and make some noise at your local politicians. Climate action happens wherever you are.

You can register your strike, find other people striking, and other resources here.

Fridays For Future is an international climate movement active in most countries and our website offers information on who we are and what you can do.
#FridaysForFuture is a youth-led and -organised global climate strike movement that started in August 2018, when [then] 15-year-old Greta Thunberg began a school strike for climate. To begin with, she was alone, but she was soon joined by others...
