First, there was A Moth for Amy, then Larkin with Toads. 2022 marks the year of Puffins Galore, a mass public art project in Hull and East Riding and Boston Energy is proud to be joining the colony!
Standing around 1.5m tall, each puffin will be covered head-to-toe with a design by local artists and members of the public, to attract visitors to less well-known places in the area, as well as encourage them to track down the Puffins.
Mark Parkes, Managing Director of Bostonair Group, said “Boston Energy is proud to be involved in the Puffins Galore initiate, especially after the success of ‘A Moth For Amy’ which we were involved in as a Group in 2016. The demand for renewable energy is growing every day, and we hope that by raising awareness in a creative and engaging way we can rally as much support for the charities as possible and preserve not only the endangered species and wildlife along our east coast but also take the first steps towards a greener future. ”
Bostonair Group, of which Boston Energy is a part, were previously involved in the Moth for Amy projects, a 2016 initiative celebrating the first female pilot to fly solo from Britain to Australia.
The newly designed sculptures, inspired by the Arctic Puffin, will be carefully placed along the East Yorkshire coast from Flamborough to Spurn Point where their inspiration is known to reside.
The Artic Puffin is an endangered species well known to inhabit the cliffs of Flamborough, and the new initiative hopes to not only encourage tourists and regular visitors to spend more time in the area but also raise awareness of the puffin and other endangered species and coastal wildlife that lives there.
In a time where the demand for renewable energy is more important than ever, each artist used the themes of global warming and climate change in their final design. Artist Hannah Watson, the creator of the puffin Boston Energy has sponsored, said her design serves as a “reminder that there is a greener way to ensure sufficient generation of energy that will help our ecosystem.”
The puffins will be ‘released’ into the wild in July and be available to visit right up until November when each puffin will be auctioned off to raise money for the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds, The Yorkshire Wildlife Trust, The Royal National Lifeboat Institution, and Hornsea Inland Rescue.
