The call of the sea... & of Shark Bay

on 26 Jul 2016 

Last Thursday night Bush Heritage celebrated the Call of the Sea exhibition at the Moore Gallery in Fremantle. The event provided an opportunity to discuss Bush Heritage and our important work at Hamelin Reserve where we are helping to protect the beautiful but fragile Shark Bay environment.

Over 70 people attended the event and enjoyed viewing the artworks from Dutch and Western Australian artists including the stunning aerial landscapes of Richard Woldendorp. Richard spoke at the event about his desire to engage the public with the beauty of the West Australian landscape through his photography.

Executive Manager for the West, Luke Bayley, spoke about the work of Bush Heritage across Australia and its newest acquisition in the West, Hamelin Reserve. He emphasised that art provides a fantastic opportunity to connect people with nature. Luke said that art such as the beautiful work on display at the Call of the Sea celebrates our unique landscapes and biodiversity.

It was a fabulous night and a chance to connect with new and long-standing supporters in the West.
