Artist Name:
Wendi Leigh
Prolific pending Extinction
About the artwork:

This work was inspired by reading about the women who help protect the National Parks and threatened wildlife on the Hunter Central Coast and the women in our history who collected and studied our unique wildlife for our education and enjoyment.
It is a telling story of current climatic threats to our native flora and fauna. Reflecting on these ecological perils, I have become a climate activist, using my work as a platform to raise awareness and imagine a more sustainable future.
