Whisper -Ruru





Whisper’ was a ruru that truly touched the hearts of many all around the globe. This artwork is a special tribute to what an incredible bird she was – an advocate for her species, a foster mother to other ruru chicks, and a dear friend to the Wingspan team. She was bought to Wingspan 13 years ago as an egg and was artificially incubated and hand reared. She has provided not just advocacy but a wealth of knowledge into studying the habits and behaviours of a ruru. Sadly, Whisper passed away on the 9th of September 2020; she will be missed by many. This artwork was drawn from a photograph Hannah took when she met Whisper at Wingspan in 2019 and the A2 original artwork was drawn over July-September 2020.
