Wildlife artist Penny Winn has created a new painting of a koala bear. She did this because Australia is in the midst of a catastrophic early fire season. As dozens of fires rage the animals of Australia have taken center stage in the media. Even though wildlife artist isn’t from Australia she knows the perils of these dying animals and wants people to see them and hopefully help to do something for them.
Images of burned and dying koalas are all over the news, they seem to be the symbol for the fires. People are asking if the koala bear are now going to be finally consider extinct since they will no longer be able to have enough of the only food source, they eat the eucalyptus plant. They are now being seen to drink water which they never do since the plant has enough water to sustain them. With the fires taking this vital resource the koalas are going down from the top of the trees to the forest floor to find what they need. They are desperate to find what they need. They are so slow they can not get out the of the way of traffic, the fires, and other things that will slowly or quickly kill them.
It is imperative that we find a way to change what we are doing as a society and look at what we are doing to our wildlife and look how nature is changing. We need to put their needs ahead of our own before we no longer have them. Soon it won’t just be the koalas. So many animals are struggling… Artist Penny Winn is looking at ways to put this painting and its proceeds in the Australian relief fund for Koalas and other animals in need. If you know anything about this, please contact her. Thanks
