The Threatened Species Art and Writing Competition (TSAC) is a regional environmental education program, involving Campbelltown City Council, Camden Council and Wollondilly Shire Council. The competition celebrates Biodiversity Month (September) and Threatened Species Day on Monday 7 September.
The Macarthur region, our backyard, is home to a wide diversity of native plants and animals. Many of these which are affected by a range of impacts. This includes habitat loss, competition and predation from non-native species and foreign diseases. There are a range of species occurring within the local region that are at risk of extinction and have been listed as ‘Threatened Species.’
The competition targets all stages of primary school and is open to young people aged 5-12. TSAC encourages students to learn about a local threatened species and represent it in an artwork, or creative writing piece. Winners will have the opportunity to be featured in the video to describe their artwork and inspiration.
