Speak in Mew / rescue equipment

Speak in Mew
Speak in Mew

Inspired by the way birds communicate, I want to give out specific signals that can be recognized by birds to prevent seabirds falling victim to oil spill accidents on the sea. Animals’ vigilance could help them elude enemies and dangers from natural disaster. Nevertheless, they can do nothing about the crisis caused by human activity. “Speak in mew” gives alarm signals to seabirds in case of accidents and help them recognize the danger of disasters caused by human activity like oil spill.
