Looking for a gum tree

Koalas, whose Latin name means ash-color bear with bag, are one of the most charismatic Australian icons. To most of the people, they arouse feelings of tenderness. However, they are considered a vulnerable species throughout Australia, due to the loss of ecosystem and diseases. Every time they find more difficulties to find food. I wish we could help the recovery of this species in other forests outside Australia, but its autochthonous diet based on eucalyptus leaves limits our options.

Significance of the artwork: 

This artwork shows us how far we can reach when we need it.  

It also speaks about the need to preserve nature, our environment.

Social commitment:

A portion of the profits from the sale of this artwork will be donated to a project to protect the koalas in Australia. More information about this project will be available soon.
