TO BE LEFT ALONE is an animated movie, Sofia Tsalidou and I created, for the Hellenic Ornithological Society. It supports Leaving is Living, a three-year campaign that takes place in Italy, Greece and Spain aiming to socio-cultural attitude changes towards illegal killing.
The movie presents some of the difficulties flamingos, or wild birds in general, have to go through when migrating. To be left alone aims to raise awareness for illegal capturing or hunting of the species as well as the ecological balance that is being challenged due to human irresponsible practises.
Hellenic Ornithological Society is a conservation, non-governmental organization for the protection of wild birds and their habitats in Greece. It was founded in 1982 and its mission is to ensure a sustainable natural environment for birds and people.
