Issue 3: Insects, Animals, Birds and Fish (Submissions Accepted during April 2019)

For Issue 3 we will be looking for previously unpublished haiku sharing your observations and interactions with insects, animals, birds or fish. Species definitions do not matter here; amoeba, spiders, butterflies, molluscs, whales, coral reefs, ecosystems and our own animal nature all lie within our scope. We prefer haiku compatible with an appreciation of all with whom we cohabit the earth. Our focus will be on Australian fauna as well as introduced species that now feature in the Australian context.

Haiku submissions for Echidna Tracks Issue 3 may be made via the form on the Submissions page throughout the month of April 2019.
