AT THEIR 3RD MARCH
WE HOPE YOU HAVE HEARD BY NOW
THAT IAN FRASER HAS AUTHORED A NEW BOOK ABOUT THE NATURAL HISTORY OF THE
A.C.T AND REGION.
IAN HAS LONG CHAMPIONED OUR
REGION AS A TREASURE TROVE FOR NATURALISTS. HE HAS JOINED WITH
CELEBRATED WILDLIFE ARTIST PETER MARSACK TO CREATE A MAGICAL BOOK WITH
WONDERFUL TALES AND SCIENTIFIC SECRETS OF DOZENS OF FAVOURITE LOCAL SPECIES.
PETER'S PAINTINGS BRING THE SUBJECTS TO LIFE, THOROUGHLY COMPLEMENTING AND
ENHANCING IAN'S WORDS.
For Field Nats, many of the fascinating
insects Kim showed us in February are in the book. For COG, FOG, ACTHA, ANPS
and ANBG members over 35 birds, 20 plant species, ten reptiles and frogs are
featured. Peter depicts virtually countless associations with minature,
medium and larger paintings that show his naturalist's flair is as vibrant
as Ian's.There are ten stories for each month of the year, ideal for our own
learning or for sharing with each generation.
In the style so regularly heard on
ABC's 666 Radio Ian will illustrate his passion for our own
habitats and wildlife and reiterate the role we
can all play in re-connecting people with the natural world around
