In a cold day of late November 2022, an extremely good-looking female activist marched through London wearing almost nothing but body paint in bid to save birds.  
The activist’s name is Hannah Bourne-Taylor, who made a speech on behalf of the swift population at Speaker’s Corner in Hyde Park, wearing only a G-string underwear piece and the impressive pictorial work by artist Bruno Daniele on her skin.  
Bourne-Taylor is a conservationist unafraid of the British autumn weather who stated: “I stand here today, as a go-between for swifts, to ask for your comradery, because they need our help.” From Hyde Park Corner, she marched, almost completely naked on a cold November day in London, to Buckingham Palace and Downing Street during her protest. 
It is now surprising that Bourne-Taylor recurred to art to put across her message: she has been a photographer focussing on horses and worked as a copywriter in the branding industry. As a cultured woman, she has ghost written and edited books, including working closely with Anne Glenconner on her bestselling ‘Lady in Waiting: My Extraordinary Life in the Shadow of the Crown’, and with Norman Scott for ‘An Accidental Icon’. 
Bourne-Taylor is obsessed with the natural world, and as she puts in in her website: ‘Nature brings me joy, fuels my curiosity and constantly shows me how to live my best life. I want to contribute to protecting the obscure, resilient, efficient, beautiful natural world’.  
We admire Bourne-Taylor for the way she has approximated art to her intention of safeguarding the existence of wild birds. She is teaching us how art can be a great weapon for individuals who want to make a difference, no matter how small, when it comes to instil ecological and conservationist values in communities, both near and far away ones.
