Thanks to the generous donation of the Carre family, all funds generated from online sales of these cute Quokka greeting cards, will be directed towards environmental rehabilitation projects on Rottnest.
Produced by Edwina Carre who has been painting all her life, the pen, ink and watercolour painting of this cheeky little quokka has been printed onto cards and can be purchased from the Rottnest Foundation’s online merchandise store.
Edwina is a retired art teacher who continues to draw and always carries a sketch book with her on holidays. The Carre family frequently visited Rottnest Island while the children were growing up as Edwina’s husband was a naval clearance diver who enjoyed diving in the pristine waters. As a result, the Carre family are keen to support the Rottnest Foundation through their generous of a quantity of greeting cards.
The Rottnest Foundation would also like to acknowledge William Fishleigh from ‘Make an Impression’ Greeting Cards who produces greeting cards and is generously donating a percentage from each print run of the quokka card to support our conservation projects on the Island.
The quokka cards can also be purchased from the Salt Store and the General Store on Rottnest Island and from participating IGA stores and pharmacies around Perth, including the Carre family owned IGA Swanbourne Market. Cards retail for $1 and are blank inside.
