In some parts of the Reef, turtles are being affected by the fibropapilloma (FP) virus, which may cause blindness, immobility, the obstruction of internal organs and death among young green turtles. The virus may be occurring because of pollutants from industry or pesticides washing into the Reef.
This year Dax Bead Art has donated to the preservation marine parks and their fauna in Australia. This donation has been purchased with 10% of sales from the Endangered Collection and Dax's beaded 'Adopt a Sea Star' initiative at the Festival of Glass, 2013.

Two metres of a five kilometre predator-proof fence for the Australian Black-flank rock wallaby is Dax's donation to the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) in 2011/2012. It has been purchased with 10% of sales from Endangered Collection sales.
Rock wallabies are unique to Australia. There are currently 15 species of rock wallaby, however many are now considered a threatened species due to loss of habitat from clearing of native vegetation, weed invasion and fire.
WWF is helping the species recover; our adoption package supports that work.
