- there is little awareness of the species even though it is 'critically endangered' ie. as endangered as a species can be before it becomes extinct;
- populations of the moth exist locally in Canberra;
- it represents an un-iconic species/group of species- not as beautiful or big as say whales or owls- but still important to the functioning of the environment; and,
- I have first hand-experience of surveying for the moths.
I think the next step will be to paint the landscape onto the plywood first, then include female and male moths- perhaps at a smaller scale. I've only got a couple of weeks left, so will see what happens!
