Community volunteer group Geoffrey Bay Coastcare secured funding for the artwork by Traditional Owners through the Australian Government Caring For Our Country program.
“A flatback turtle nest hatched at Geoffrey Bay in 2009” said Coastcare member Tony O’Malley. “Rainbow bee-eaters also burrow in the dunes, red-tailed black cockatoos feed on she-oak seeds, and coral and seagrass fringe the bay, so it’s a natural paradise we want to look after, and Arthur Johnson’s painting promotes that.”
