COMPOSED BY EUNICE HICKS

Eunice Hicks is a music teacher and mother of four, living south of Perth, Western Australia. She completed her Bachelor of Music at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music in 2001, then moved with her pilot/musician husband to the Northern Territory where they started a family and played in the Darwin Symphony Orchestra. At bedtime, Eunice would sing homespun ditties to her little ones, fostering a love of the unique and noisy local wildlife to the soundtrack of thunderstorms and croaking frogs. After returning to the West, local marsupials such as the quokka and quenda were celebrated. Her primary school students have fallen in love with the precious numbat through her ‘Numbat Child’ song, written in hopes of the younger generation picking up the conservation baton.

 

Chelsea Donohoe is a talented artist, educator and devoted mother, raising her three wildlife warriors amongst the magnificent forests and picturesque beaches of the South West. While working in remote Western Australia and sharing knowledge with Indigenous youth, she developed a passionate connection to the land and its people. She is committed to encouraging others to spend time in nature in order to grow respect for our wild places and strengthen ties to the land.
