“Two cute melomys available immediately for a captive breeding program”
And here is a closer look at my cartoon in the Wildlife Australia magazine. Out of the three extinct animals the article focused on, I chose the bramble cay melomys as I enjoyed capturing their cuteness and they have huge visual impact. These melomys are the first mammal to become extinct by raising sea levels due to climate change and I think that is massive news that needs to be broadcasted. And as the article, ‘Learning From Loss’, highlights, why isn’t there an inquest into these extinctions for us to learn from, and could have set up a captive breeding program before it was too late.
