Please Leave Out Water for Wildlife

Around nipaluna, lutruwita we have many unique opportunities to engage with critically important and diverse animal and plant species. Frequently on my walk towards the water front from Knocklofty Reserve in West Hobart, I am amazed at the vast array of native and non-native species I come across and I am truly thankful to live in a place that is able to accommodate such diverse non-human communities.

The work features a variety of migratory and native animals with remnants of human cultures co-inhabiting the same spaces. This work and title aims to encourage consideration of our relationships with our non-human animal neighbors who also call this beautiful corner of the planet home.
