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.
17 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.

BUNURONG – LANDS OF THE BOON WURRUNG PEOPLE
We acknowledge that the lands and waters of Westernport belong to the Bunnerong (Boon Wurrung) Peoples of the Kulin Nation.
We offer our respects to their Aboriginal Elders past and emerging, and recognise their continuing contribution to caring for Country.
“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.
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.
In March 2021 the Victorian Government rejected AGL’s filthy and destructive plan to turn Westernport Bay into a massive gas import terminal. This would have spelled disaster for the animals, birds + marine life that call it home, not to mention our valuable Wetlands.
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 opposed AGL + APA.
Grassroots organisations and our collective voices forced this decision. Together we put forward the greatest number of submissions ever to be made to the Victorian government in an EES process … together WE WON.
We support + volunteer for both Environment Victoria + Save Westernport
