Craft a critter

Using your crafting skills, produce a creation of your chosen Australian native threatened species and share it with the Commissioner on social media. Submissions should include a written description or short video about the importance of your threatened critter, why you chose it and how you made it.

A list of nationally threatened species, a list of Threatened Species Strategy priority species and provisional lists of animals, plants and invertebrates in need of urgent intervention following the most recent bushfire season, can be found on the right under ‘Resources’.

Upload an image or video of your critter along with a written description to Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram using the hashtag #CraftACritter and tagging the Threatened Species Commissioner (@TSCommissioner). If you’re unable to enter via social media, please send your submission through to craftacritter@awe.gov.au.

The Threatened Species Commissioner, Dr Sally Box, will announce the winners of Craft a Critter on Friday 5th June. The winning entries will be displayed on social media as well as on the Threatened Species Commissioner Website.

By entering the Craft a Critter competition, you are giving permission for the Department and judges to use the image or video to promote the initiative.

Submissions are open until 5pm AEST 3rd June 2020.
