“I Can Hug Trees Too”

Just thought I’d post this as it is something a little bit different from my usual cute and fluffy wildlife animals!  I came across some cicada shells on a tree on a recent lunch time walk in Whites Hill Reserve in Brisbane and so I attempted to sketch them..  Then I realised that, yes they may not be cute and fluffy, but they do belong to the wonderful natural landscape and the order of animals called ‘Tree Huggers’ which classification covers a wide range of animals which includes koalas, possums, snakes, and nature loving humans.

Reef Blitz Moreton Bay

eel and turtle sketches by Brisbane illustrator Edd Cross

Reef Blitz Moreton Bay

On Sunday Hazel and I joined a Reef Blitz boat trip to Moreton Bay to St Helen Island to help with some citizen science.  It was a joint arrangement by Reef Check, Coral Watch and Mangrove Watch, with each organisation providing lots of great information about how we can all help collect data for their research – please click on the links in this paragraph to learn more.

It was a great day out and being an avid scuba diver and lover of sea life I’ll definitely be looking at ways to help.

Oh yes, that was a quick sketch from a photo of an eel and turtle within the Coral Watch brochure 🙂
