Last year, these leading artists spent a week with AWC scientists exploring the spectacular landscape of Pungalina-Seven Emu Wildlife Sanctuary, which covers 300,000 hectares of sandstone escarpment, tropical rivers and pristine coastline in the Gulf country of the Northern Territory. The result of this trip is a collection of exceptional work celebrating the beauty of the Pungalina landscape, combining the perspective of artist and scientist.

The first $40,000 in sales from each artist will be donated to AWC.  These funds will be used by AWC to deliver practical, science-based conservation for the threatened wildlife and habitats of northern Australia.
