Green Skills has organised several exhibitions promoting Gondwana LInk and its wetlands through art and photography
- Waterbirds Photographic Exhibition – May to August 2018- at Walpole CRC
Wetland Birds Photographic i Exhibition Opens In Walpole To Promote Wetland Awareness and Conservation
This Green Skills exhibition displays 5 large panels featuring the species of ducks, geese and grebes that occur in the South West of WA. While some are familiar to everyone, others are rarely seen and are in crucial need of habitat protection and other conservation measures.
Fourteen of the waterbird species shown were taken by Dick Walker, and one by Tony Peterson. Both are keen south coast bird watchers and photographers.
The exhibition forms part of the Green Skills’ Gondwana Wetlands Conservation program. This project is supported by funding from the Western Australian Government’s State Natural Resource Management Program, supported by Royalties for Regions as well as Lotterywest.
