Art of the Threatened Species
NSW has one of the world’s most diverse and beautiful natural environments, including its plants and animals. Yet despite our natural wealth, NSW has nearly 1,000 species on the verge of extinction. The Art of Our Threatened Species project looks to engage the community with threatened species in a new way, through the eyes and creativity of artists across NSW. This project will see scientists and artists working in close collaboration in a wide variety of locations on a wide variety of species across the NSW landscape.
