About threatened treasures

Threatened Treasures is a volunteer powered, community project aiming to create an anthology to inspire wonder, curiosity and hope, in 6 to 14 year olds as they immerse themselves in poetry, illustrations, scientific insights and Indigenous knowledge, in relation to Australia’s threatened flora, fauna and eco-systems.

Inspired by Australia’s crisis of extinction, extreme weather challenges and the distress these conditions have wrought in many young people, Threatened Treasures seeks to make a record of, celebrate and honour our threatened natural treasures, whilst instilling hope for the future. 
All royalties will be donated to companies committed to conservation of the environment and the preservation of indigenous knowledge.
