    Hi all, my name is Leigh Rust and I am a wildlife artist who has set up an artist network to help raise funds for wildlife conservation through the sale of our artwork. I've been working with Zoos Victoria over the past few months. I have just found this website and have really enjoyed reading the threads on all the happenings in the zoos. I can tell that this site will be invaluable tome in keeping up to date with the various developments.

    Here is a sample of my work. This is one of the new arrivals at Melbourne Zoo having her morning bath. This piece will be shown at the Camberwell Rotary Art Show in a few weeks.

    I look forward to getting to know you all over the next few months.

    Hi Patrick, thanks for the welcome. I'm envious of you doing all the display work at the zoo!
