Turtle illustration for World Science Festival
So I thought I would combine World Habitat Day and Inktober‘s theme for the day which is ‘Divided’. Due to urbanisation a lot of wildlife habitat is becoming fragmented. Once the habitat is divided, the wildlife then have to make their own way between their territories and in search of homes and food. This […]
Wahoo today is Save the Koala Day and therefore I was hoping to find a koala today but unfortunately to no avail. To tell the truth I haven’t seen one in quite some time.

Last Saturday I exchanged my pencils for conservation tools and joined my new local Woolloongabba Conservation Group doing some weed removal and tree planting. Can’t beat spending time in the bush and being able to give it a helping hand at the same time.
A couple of photos from National Tree Day last weekend at Mount Gravatt Environment Group. Was great to catch up with friends and help the mountain with lantana weed removal and planting new native species.

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 […]
