A lot going on where I live.
March 20, 2023
I live in the Redland's Shire of Queensland. This was, until the last 10 to 20 years a very rural area. There is rich red soil, perfect for growing all kinds of foods, but fruit, and in particular, strawberries, have been the favoured crops.
This has always been a hot spot for koala, but urban sprawl has seen the suburbs extend right out to the bay, removing habitat, farms and native animals. The Bay Islands, where I live, is a small microcosm of what used to be, but even that is being eroded.
At the moment they are re-directing aircraft from Brisbane out over the bay which the birds are finding hard to handle. From September to April this is home to migratory birds, some come from Siberia.
But on the up side, there are a lot more services than there used to be. Our local council hosts two galleries, one in Cleveland and the other at Capalaba and at the moment both have excellent exhibitions.
Cleveland - This exhibition is from the Bendigo Art Gallery and it blew me away.
Capalaba - Sharon is a local artist from the Russell Island.
Both are really significant exhibits and I will write about them through out the week.
to be continued:
Looking forward to hearing more!

Both of these exhibitions were wonderful but the fight will be a long one to save the wildlife.
