Queensland Wildlife Artists Society
The Society was established in 1983 in Brisbane, by a small group of artists interested in fostering the study and appreciation of wildlife art specifically relating to Australia's unique species.
QWASI became incorporated in 1995 and membership has steadily grown to include artists from all over Australia and overseas.
- To engage the general public and to educate them through art, on the importance of preserving Australia's unique natural heritage, and the imperativeness of environmental sustainability.
