photo series: Ghetto Birds - About pigeons: tauben17
Gudrun Stürmer, head of the ‚Stadttaubenprojekt‘, that serves as a quarantaine station for sick and injured pigeons. She founded the project 30 years ago. „Because mankind treats pigeons like rubbish“, she says. She is scared that her life project fails because authorities do not pay enough for a project that does communal work. Authorities rather spend money for ineffective aversive conditoning.
