Three eastern hooded plovers feed on the waterline at sunset. The estimated total population of as few as 3000 birds is threatened by introduced predators; by habitat loss caused by coastal development, encroaching weeds and climate change; and by people, vehicles, horses and dogs crushing eggs and chicks.
This work was submitted by the artist as part of Wild Island's Threatened Species Project 2023. One third of the proceeds will go to Tasmanian Orchid Conservation & Research Program and the Swift Parrot Surveying & Monitoring Program (in conjunction with BBF, TWS and GRANT) and will continue to support Friends of The Orford Bird Sancturary.
It’s a small thing we can do during an age of climate change, mass species decline and habitat loss.
