Just felt so inspired by this week's koala prompt from my nature art painting group.
In some parts of Australia, koala populations have grown out of control. You might have seen reports recently of a controversial mass culling in Victoria along the Great Ocean Road. In other parts, koalas are endangered by a whole range of threats, from habitat clearing and wild dog attacks to road accidents and disease. In south-east Queensland, a groundbreaking study is tracking individual koalas to see how they're faring.
"This is really the largest and most intensive koala-monitoring project ever done. To monitor those koalas, we have to send field teams out with a directional antenna and they track the koala down and check it out with binoculars and make sure it's OK." You can read more about this project here. Let's hope it finds some good information on how to protect koalas from threats to their habitat.
You can buy prints of this artwork here and t-shirts featuring this print here.
Linking up to Paint Party Friday! Let's all join in and spread the koala love.
