Terracotta discs with a satin olive glaze representing the land clearing in Australia and the destruction it causes to our native wildlife.



‘The impacts of tree-clearing are significant on both plants and animals and the wider health of the planet. Some 964 of the 1,250 Australian terrestrial animal species listed as threatened have habitat fragmentation or degradation listed as a threat, while the same is true for 286 of the 390 threatened plant species’

‘Species under threat due to tree-clearing include Carnaby’s cockatoo, the southern cassowary, Bennet’s tree kangaroo, the Cape York rock- wallaby, and the black-flanked rock-wallaby, as well as the iconic koala, recently listed as vulnerable to extinction in Queensland and New South Wales.’



‘In Australia, most tree-clearing is undertaken to create pasture for livestock. This process was largely halted following the introduction of bans on excessive tree-clearing in New South Wales and Queensland in the 1990s and early 2000s, but recent changes to legislation in both states have again made it easier for farmers and landowners to clear trees. Another cause of deforestation is climate change which can lead to increased frequency and intensity of bushfires and droughts.’ • WWF
