Connecting through cultural practices and life sciences

Water Spirit design by Guindri (Paul Davis)

On Monday 18th December Yuin man Dean Kellyled a walk through his Whale Dreaming Songline in the Royal National Park. The event was organised by popular demand following the success of his Walk Through Country on the final day of the New Science for a Changing World conferenceconducted by the Australia Freshwater Sciences Society (AFSS)- previously known as the Australian Society of Limnology (ASL) - and hosted by the University of Technology Sydney.

The walk on the 18th was the first in a series of events with Aboriginal knowledge holders. We are planning events on a quarterly basis with the next one slated for March 2018. We will continue to engage with interested parties to secure funding to make this series accessible and to further broaden community engagement.

Connecting with Country co-ordinators
guided by Gomeroi man Phil Duncan.


Phil Duncan interviewed at the 2017 AFSS conference, Sydney.

The theme of the conference was New Science for a Changing World - how development, population growth, intensification of agriculture and climate change are affecting our waterways and wetlands as never before, and how our science is giving us more understanding to help us identify and mitigate impacts.
