Our Community


To support The Wilderness Society we donate a % of sales from our  knitted ‘TREE’ blankets … each year since 2005.

Luna is earnest in protecting old growth forests + natural habitat for native wildlife.

 

The Wilderness Society has campaigned for 40+ years to protect Australia’s native forests and the
animals that live there. Without organisations like The Wilderness Society, we would be unaware of
the immense destruction to our precious eco-systems + native fauna.

 

Our petite Leadbeater Possum is Victoria’s State animal emblem and not found anywhere else on Earth.
However due to state-sponsored logging of their forest homes, these tiny marsupials are critically endangered.

We applaud The Wilderness Society for their grassroots campaigning — empowering us to help
protect our environment — keeping us informed.

 

15 years ago we were at a World Environment Day rally in Melbourne.
The passion and power will stay with us forever.
 Don’t leave here thinking you can’t do anything” was the message.

 

Back then it seemed like a hopeless cause, but we were inspired … had an idea to design + knit a TREE blanket,
donating profits to their foundation.  Our artwork was scratchy, but the roots + trunk were strong

 

. . . so is our loyalty to the cause.

“I was born + bred near this precious place and feel a very strong connection to the land + sea of
Westernport Bay on the Mornington Peninsula.”  Beverley Armstrong – founder of Luna Gallery.

 

 Environment Victoria-design-4  save-westernport
So many in this community are doing their best to protect this valuable part of our world –
it’s massively important Ramsar Wetlands + fragile eco-system.

 

It is home to Weedy Sea Dragons, Australian fur seals and a wide range of migratory birds.
Wetlands are the most biodiverse ecosystems on this planet.  These Coastal wetlands form part
of the internationally significant Western Port Ramsar site.

 

AGL have a filthy plan to turn Westernport Bay into a massive gas import terminal. This would spell
disaster for the animals, birds + marine life that call it home, not to mention our valuable Wetlands.

 

At present their Environment Effects Statement is under enquiry.
Environment Victoria, Save Westernport, Bunurong Elders, Victorian National Parks Association, 
Shire Councils for Bass Coast, Casey, Mornington Peninsula + Cardinia  + MANY business owners,
conservation groups and community members fiercely oppose AGL + APA.

 

The impacts + irreversible damage this project would cause to our Wetlands, flora, fauna + water quality
is unacceptable.  The effects it is having + would continue to have on the community is unforgivable.

 

We support + volunteer for both Environment Victoria + Save Westernport
and continue to fight to STOP AGL from this destructive and unnecessary violation of Westernport Bay.
