Threatened species series, Koala

In the lead up to “National Threatened Species Day” on September 7th. We encourage our students at Art Box Workshops for term Three, to create artworks on paper in various mediums and learning new creative skills in drawing, painting, printmaking and mixed media. Whilst our students are engaged in learning new methods in the medium they choose they also have the opportunity to learn more about Australian threatened species.

This year the number of threatened species in N.S.W is over 1000, even though this is a daunting fact to comprehend by looking at each individual plant or animal and honouring them with creating an artwork children will be inspired to learn more about the Threatened species understand the individual reasons for their populations decline and be open to share their views about these issues.
The koala is listed as ‘vulnerable to extinction’ under the Threatened Species Conservation Act 1995
Two populations of koalas are listed as ‘endangered’ under the Threatened Species Conservation Act.

One of the Plants that we will be teaching how to draw and create into an artwork is the “Crimson Spider Orchid” (Caladenia concolor) ,boasts deep purplish-red flowers that are said to smell like a hot motor when they bloom in September.  These orchids are likely to suffer damage during track maintenance and when vehicles leave established tracks. While fire may have a positive influence on seedling germination and establishment, inappropriate fire regimes are considered a threat to the crimson spider orchid. Serious weed infestations may also impact on the orchid. There are thought to be just four crimson spider orchid populations in NSW.
