Thomas Jackson - ‘Feather Tailed Glider and Grevillea’


‘Feather Tailed Glider and Grevillea’
Water color and Gouache on Archers, 16.5 "x 10.6"
I've been wanting to create this work for over a year ever since I was fortunate enough to hand feed a feather tailed glider at Sydney’s Taronga Zoo last year.
Feather Tailed Gliders and other native glider species have become flagship threatened species for loss of habitats. Australia has been facing this threat for many years and sadly the trend dose not seem to be changing. Other contributing factors are forrest clearing and feral cats have decimated their populations and sadly, numbers are dwindling.
