National Science Week 2022 – #habitatforspecies
Sat 13 August - Sun 21 August
Calling all artists, animators, HSC students, regenerative farmers, twitchers, botanical illustrators and you too…..
Discover how you can protect and create healthy habits for threatened endemic flora, fauna, and invertebrates through learning about inland rivers, soils, migratory corridors and endemic planting.
Orange Cowra Cabonne Science Hub have invited artists Todd Fuller and Angus Fisher to join us for a hybrid program both at the CORRIDOR project and online. Over two weekends Todd and Angus will tutor botanical illustration and stop motion animation as part of a unique science collaboration. Birdlife Australia Jayden Gunn will take participants on a field walk exploring habitat restoration for endangered species includinghabitat corridors, stepping stone cluster planting, protected remnant vegetation for birds, bats, insects, reptiles and mammals.
The program intends to highlight endangered flora, fauna and habitat renewal [examples identified include the endangered superb parrot, glossy black cockatoo, golden sun moth, and Sloane’s froglet, [Critically endangered] Box-Gum Woodlands, Regent Honeyeaters, Swift parrot + [Threatened} Diamond Firetail; hooded Robin; SpeakledWarbler; Brown Treecreeper; Turquoise Parrot [Vunerable] Superb Parrot, Painted honeyeater [Migratory species] Dollarbirds, Rainbow Beeeaters, Black Cockatoos, White Bellied Sea – Eagle Trees: Yellow Box, White Gum, Blakely’s Red Gum encouraging Superb Parrot, Dollar birds, Rainbow Bee-eaters, and Sacred Kingfishers, Squirrel Gliders, and Monotremes.
These workshops bring ornithology, animation and scientific illustration experts together to engage communities in creating flora and fauna habitats envisaged as a short video.
>Imagine how you can contribute to making a collaborative stop motion video bringing awareness to ‘conservation biology’ whilst learning about sub migratory woodland bird and animal species
>Collectively we can learn and discover how species can survive with community awareness and action.
>Learn how to bring #habitatforspecies alive using stop motion animation, collage and drawing techniques. Together we are going to build an imaginary woodland situated on a river teaming with birds, animals, insects, and plants.
