A Vulnerable Parliament
'A Vulnerable Parliament' is an installation piece featuring life size ceramic sculptures of the lesser sooty owl Tyto multipunctata. The lesser sooty owl occurs only in the wet tropics rainforest and is classified as vulnerable. A parliament is the name given to a group of owls. As the Lesser Sooty Owl is unable to build a true nest and depends on nest hollows, it is especially vulnerable to habitat loss. The most significant conservation problem is the destruction, degradation and alteration of habitat.
