My inspiration is the aftermath of the 2019/2020 bushfires in Australia. Billions of animals were lost accelerating their vulnerability to exist in their shrinking habitat advancing some from VU to EN and CR status. Excessive clearing of the land for development and logging has also had an alarming impact on our native fauna and flora. It is shameful that our iconic Koala is now deemed Vulnerable heading towards critical by 2050.
