Highlights

 

The Trumpeter Swan Reintroduction Project at Wye Marsh -

When the Huron inhabited the Wye Marsh 350 years ago Trumpeter Swans were common to the area. Almost extinct by the 1930’s the species is now listed as “vulnerable” by the World Wildlife Fund. Today, the Wye Marsh, as part of the Eastern Canada Trumpeter Swan Reintroduction Program, is bringing them back.

 

As a keen supporter of The Trumpeter Swan Reintroduction Program, Frank deMatteis was eager to demonstrate this support in a tangible way, by creating a work of art and donating it to the program. “Celebration of Trumpeters” depicts two Trumpeter Swans trumpeting their success at having banished an intruder and vividly conveys the nervous relief felt by the triumphant swans. It is beautiful in its precision and in the manner in which it communicates the energy of nature its self.
