Mini Exhibition – Extinction Matters: Tasmania’s Threatened Species
September 1, 2016 @ 10:00 am - September 7, 2016 @ 5:00 pm
Threatened Species Day is a national day held each year on 7 September to commemorate the death of the last remaining Tasmanian Tiger (also known as the thylacine) at Beaumaris Zoo in Hobart in 1936. This is the 80th year since the death of this thylacine, and fittingly the theme for this year is ‘Extinction Matters’.
To coincide with Threatened Species Day, Wild Island will be hosting a mini exhibition for one week only. This will be an opportunity to reflect on what has happened in the past, and how we can protect our threatened species in the future. A day to celebrate our success stories and ongoing threatened species recovery work.
With original artworks and design pieces by some of our contributing artists, we will showcase just a very small number of the current species that are threatened in Tasmania. For a full list of Tasmania’s threatened species, you can view the DPIPWE database.
Contributing artists include: Rebecca Kissling, Julie Stoneman, Fyona Storer, Hayley Garbowski and more….
Wild Island will be conducting a range of events, including workshops, talks and field trips. Please sign up to our mailing list to be kept informed of events as they are announced, and for the chance to win a free print!”
