Eagle Wings – Protecting the Alps
Julian Lennon became an Ambassador of the Eagle Wings Project to help raise awareness of Nature’s needs. The woman behind the project is Nomi Baumgartl, an internationally acclaimed and award-winning photographer. Eagle Wings came about through a twist of fate and aims to raise awareness of the fragile balance between nature and mankind. This project creates a three-dimensional interplay of nature seen through the eagle’s eye, from a satellite in space, and from the human perspective. With these three-dimensional images, which are taken between heaven and earth, they want to spread their message and raise awareness about nature’s needs.
Earth – Nomi Baumgartl
Standing firmly on the ground, Nomi expresses herself through her powerful images seen from a human perspective.
Air – Eagle
Gliding high above the Alps, the eagle carries the eagle cam, which takes impressive still and moving images from the air.
Space – DLR and EOC
Satellite cameras capture images of alpine glaciers from space. This is only possible with the support of the Earth Observation Center (EOC) and the German Aerospace Center (DLR). Everyone involved in this project acts environmentally friendly keeping their footprints as small as possible. For any harm done, trees are planted in compensation.
“For me it was not only a great honour to meet Julian Lennon, but also an honour that he wants to be an ambassador for Eagle Wings. With The White Feather Foundation & Eagle Wings working together, we can share our wings and co-operate. Sharing is caring!”
