Professor Amanda Lynch's Murray River Field Trip 2013
Professor Amanda Lynch recently traveled to SE Australia to build on the research and collaboration with the Yorta Yorta Nation of SE Australia. The team conducted a community gathering to make plans for further research on improving water management in the Murray River region. The focus of the discussions were on ethical standards, knowledge building and sharing, and the relationships between culture, technology and science. Around 60 people attended the on-country meeting at Yielima, on the banks of the Murray River, including new collaborators from the Gunditjmara Nation, Parks Victoria and Parks NSW, the Department of Sustainability and the Environment, and the University of Hawaii.
