‘Precious Pests’ is now showing at The Link exhibition space featuring a group of artists brought together by Ceilidh Dalton.
Pest species in Australia have a huge impact on biodiversity and environmental degradation but they can also be highly valued as pets, in gardens or for food.
Precious Pests celebrates the value of certain pest species while acknowledging the damage they can cause. Artists have chosen pest species that they personally consider precious and examine the role they play in the ecosystem both good and bad, including the interaction between the precious pests and the species they threatened.
It aims to educate the public and in particular pest owners on the effect they have on biodiversity and threatened species and ways to minimise the impact.
