The Australian Academy of Science celebrates NAIDOC Week with a presentation on Land, water and fire: the science of a continuous culture online, on Monday 9 November at 5:30pm. You are invited to join in as they explain how Indigenous knowledge and science of land, water and fire can inform and improve the management of the natural world.
The Australian Academy of Science has given a statement about the bushfires that have ravaged Australia in the last few months. There is need for clarity around the issues of climate change and drought, man-made changes to the planetary warming and how man has treated the environment. It is time for clarity and for respect to others in this sometimes voluble conversation in the community.
