During the past year Far South Art has actively supported a range of nature education and conservation efforts in Tasmania through:

Donating my time for delivering a free drawing from nature introductory skills workshop in November 2020 as part of a Nature Play, Skills Share and Repair Cafe event run by the Australian Association for Environmental Education Tasmanian Branch at the Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens in Hobart, the event was attended by over 100 people.
Bushland protection and rehabilitation - artworks donated for inclusion in new interpretive signage and for a fund raising auction held by the Friends of Randalls Bay Coastcare Group for the ongoing management for conservation of the Quarry Reserve at Randalls Bay.
