We’re very excited to announce our long-awaited Dynamic Lagoons colouring book!
It’s part story book, part colouring book, part field guide, a little window into the amazing world of threatened upland wetlands on the New England Tablelands.
This book has been a long time in planning. To create our vision, we collaborated with renowned natural history illustrator Dr Paula Peeters. Paula visited us in February 2020 (feels like so long ago!) to look around the lagoons and immerse herself in their ecology. She took lots of photos, drew lots of sketches, and took lots of notes to fuel her creativity!
Now we are pleased to launch the finished product! It’s a beautiful book that takes you for a wander through the dynamic wetland landscape and reveals the biodiversity above and below the water, and during all the stages of the wet and dry cycle.
The book is available for free to download at Paula’s website here.
We do have limited hard copies which we are predominantly keeping for educational purposes with local schools and community groups. If you would like to discuss options for accessing these, please get in touch via Dynamic.Lagoons@une.edu.au.
