The Wild Creative
By Asher Jay
Until April 28th, 2019
Explore biodiversity loss in the Anthropocene - the Age of Man - through 5 compelling artworks in our latest exhibition.
From beneath the ocean to the heartbeat of the African savanna, artist Asher Jay asks important questions about the impact we are having on our planet and those we share it with.
A self-titled creative conservationist, and a National Geographic explorer, she uses art and story to share her experiences of the natural world, and how humans are changing it.
Orangutans are Way Cool because...
Sunday, December 2 | 1:00 - 2:00pm

... they are our closest living relatives!
But can a human teach an orangutan how to be an orangutan?
In the wild, infants learn forest survival skills from their mother, who takes care of them for 6-8 years. When an orangutan is orphaned, human surrogates take on the role of teaching them critical skills for life in the wild.
This conservation work in Borneo, known as the Forest School, is allowing orangutans to return to the wild after injury, trauma and the loss of their parents.
Conservationist Jacqui Sunderland-Groves, will be sharing more about her work with this critically endangered species this Sunday!
