KOALA

This accomplished drawing of a Koala exhibited in Where Did All the Animals Go? exhibition is accompanied by the following information:

Conservation Status: VULNERABLE

Population: 100,000 – 500,000

BIOLOGY

Koala’s are native to Australia

The Koala is an arboreal folivorous marsupial. It is a native species of Australia and occurs in forests and woodlands, typically dominated by eucalyptus species. The Koala has a specialist diet, mostly limited to foliage of Eucalyptus species, with occasional intake of leaves of other plants. At high population densities, Koalas can defoliate preferred tree species, causing tree death and subsequent Koala population crashes. The Koala is mostly solitary, but individuals have extensive overlap in home ranges.

THREATS

Current threats to this species include continued habitat loss, destruction, fragmentation, bushfires, and disease, as well as drought associated mortality in habitat fragments. Public concern for the species is high. There are management problems with many populations; remnant populations living at high densities in isolated patches of habitat are at greatest risk. The overall distribution of Koalas has been reduced since European settlement. Climate change is likely to have severe consequences for this. Information credit: IUCN Red List

 

EXHIBITION & CONFERENCE

'Where Did All the Animals Go?' An Exhibition of North East School Children’s Biro Drawings Working with Artist, Jane Lee McCracken featuring Biro drawings of some of the world’s most endangered species, at Thought Foundation Art Gallery 20 June - 22 July 2019. Jane worked with over 400 children visiting five schools across the region to deliver Biro drawing workshops. Both exhibition and the Endangered Species Conference, also organised by Jane, are supported by international wildlife charity Born Free, with President and Co-Founder Will Travers, OBE headlining the conference. Included in the exhibition is a selection of Jane’s Biro drawings, which explore loss to the environment, generated by human destruction.

Both exhibition and conference call for wider awareness and compassion for wildlife affected by human destruction, and the subsequent impact of wildlife depletion on humanity if we don’t act now. These events, which also include workshops and film screenings during the exhibition, reveal the facts as to why and how species are threatened and provide access to vital knowledge as well as concise, key actions each one of us can take, so we can make positive changes for wildlife, both locally and globally.
