What do Punk Rock and Bird Watching have in common? Paul Riss. That’s because he has just finished a “big year” (birdwatching lingo for seeing as many bird species as you can in one year) and is making a documentary about it. He’s also getting a tattoo of every bird species he spotted, and there’s punk rock involved.

┬áPaul is a creative and talented individual at DDB Canada (my employer), so I’m really interested in seeing how this will turn out. Here’s what he says about the project:

“I’m most excited about the fact that younger people might take a second look at birding because they always thought it was just for retired people. If they get interested, it generally leads to a love of the environment on a grander scale. “

Follow Paul on Twitter (he’s @ThePaulRiss), support Punk Rock Big Year on IndiGoGo or just check out his blog (it’s got lots of interesting notes on his bird watching travel and info on ways you can support bird conservation.
