Orange-Bellied Parrot by Julie Stoneman

Pen and ink on paper

Artist Statement:

The Orange-bellied Parrot being Critically Endangered could be on the brink of extinction unless it’s salt marsh habitat is further protected. As a migratory bird it’s survival depends upon widespread habitat protection across Tasmania and Victoria. 

I have painted the background of this artwork in tones of gold and silver to signify how valuable the salt marsh vegetation is and how the survival of the Orange  Bellied Parrot depends upon keeping these habitats healthy.
