The Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria, in partnership with the Melbourne Friends, are hosting an exhibition of the astounding artwork featured in Circle by Jeannie Baker. During the exhibition there will be offerings of teacher professional development with Jeannie Baker, Melbourne Water, Birdlife Australia and ZartArt, as well as specially designed education, vacation care and holiday programs.
Award winning children’s author and artist Jeannie Baker has published her long anticipated new book, Circle. This beautifully illustrated story follows the migration of the Bar-tailed Godwit (Limosa lapponica baueri) from Australia through Southeast Asia to its Alaskan breeding grounds and then back to Australia. The Bar-tailed Godwit’s 11,000 kilometre journey from their breeding grounds in Alaska across the Pacific Ocean to Australia or New Zealand is the longest unbroken migration of any animal. The birds follow invisible pathways in the sky, which they have followed for thousands of years.
