Artwork gets students hopping for World Wetlands Day

SCORES of students from Unity College have leapt into action for World Wetlands Day by decorating frog-themed artwork at Stockland's new $5 billion Aura community under construction on the Sunshine Coast.

Students and staff from the college, along with members of the Aura Community Advisory Group, were supported by staff from SEA LIFE Sunshine Coast last Friday, February 3, as they added colour to the artwork on an innovative underpass of a major new arterial road.

The underpass has been installed to ensure native fauna, such as the protected Wallum Sedgefrog species, can move safely across the landscape to feed and breed.

SEA LIFE Sunshine Coast commissioned talented artists DRAPL and LEANS from the acclaimed company Graffiti Murals to create the abstract environmental artwork which includes characterised wallum sedgefrogs.
