Student art winner: Nocturnal ray of hope for the Chuditch

Congratulations to Rosa Park from the New International School of Thailand for her “Nocturnal ray of hope for the Chuditch”, voted the best entry in the Thai division of our student conservation art competition  by an international panel of judges.

Nocturnal Ray of Hope for the Chuditch

Rosa’s winning artwork depicts an endangered Australian Chuditch (also known as the Western Quoll) active under the night stars. After learning about this shy nocturnal marsupial and drawing this amazing banner, the artist says she hopes “we are going to save chuditches from extinction.”

Rosa has already received a special prize pack from FREELAND Foundation and will have the chance to join the organization’s Surviving Together field team on a camera trapping expedition this year. Her artwork will also be displayed at Khao Yai National Park’s new Visitors’ Center, and later at Perth Zoo, in Western Australia.

Thanks to the Australia-Thailand InstituteFree the Bears and Perth Zoo for supporting this creative cross-cultural learning initiative. And well done again, Rosa!
