This May’s Creative Conservation we were exploring the use of watercolour, and a bit ambitiously frogs too. The above is an example of one of the attendees study of an autumnal leaf.
This April, Chad Beranek came to our Conservation Café. He is a wildlife ecologist and founder/director of Gumnut Naturalist. Chad is actively looking for solutions to every-day wildlife conflict problems.
We were lucky to have Leanne Elliott do a Pop-Up Conservation Café for us during her holidays back home in Sydney. Leanne is a Conservationist with Cheetah Conservation Botswana (CCB).
