Exhibition Nicosia My Cape Greco Mandala Colouring Book Launch

My Cape Greco Mandala Colouring Book Launch

Cape Greco is an area of stunning natural richness and beauty. Introducing its wonders to children and adults became the focal point of a collaboration between BirdLife Cyprus and Melissa Hekkers, the creator behind the popular mandala colouring books series. The result… A third mandala book in the series, ‘My Cape Greco Mandala’ Colouring Book.

‘My Cape Greco Mandala’ presents 11 mandala drawings, inspired by Cape Greco’s rich wildlife and hand-drawn by Melissa Hekkers. The book introduces its readers to some of the amazing birds, plants and mammals of the area, from the gorgeous Bee-eater with its vibrant plumage to the endangered Monk Seal, with its amazing diving abilities.

In the colouring book, readers can learn more about these 11 species and their relationship to Cape Greco and Cyprus. Each mandala is accompanied by characteristics and fascinating information about the species it represents. The objective of the book is to bring people closer to the natural beauty of our island, to raise awareness around our wildlife and to promote the importance of biodiversity and nature conservation in Cape Greco and beyond. Both children and adults will have the opportunity to learn more about the wildlife that surrounds us, through the relaxing and enjoyable process of colouring in.

This book is the product of her collaboration with BirdLife Cyprus and is funded by NABU (BirdLife in Germany).
