"When Glenda and Greg Lewin first described to me their vision to create a world-class wildlife art museum, I thought it was a wonderful idea and a real chance for Australian wildlife artists to have their work exhibited in a unique purpose-built gallery."

" .. To have a centre in Australia dedicated to all aspects of Wildlife Art - for tourists, for education, for artists, for promotion and for conservation values – would be wonderful. And the Grampians would simply be a magnificent backdrop for the Museum. .."

"More than at any time in artistic history, has the connection between the natural world and cultural development been so informed and yet at such a critical schism. The concept of developing an Australian art collection based on natural history subject material will provide much needed impetus and focus to enliven the dialogue for a mutually positive expression of that vital connection."

"The concept of a truly international standard wildlife art Museum is something which has been very close to my heart for much of my professional career and the complete absence of such an institution in Australia is something which has been too long overlooked. It is a serious oversight in the balance of our arising culture."

"I firmly believe that both the discovery and exploration of our environment and of Australia are inextricably intertwined, and believe an accessible public institution celebrating this is long overdue. It has relevance to a world population struggling to put its relationship to the environment into perspective, and will create a landmark tourist destination."
