Mangrove Fieldwork

Stage 4 Science

I acknowledge the traditional owners of the land on which this fieldwork program was done. I would like to pay my respects to the elders, past, present and future and acknowledge our Aboriginal elders and knowledge holders who have helped us to understand the special connection Aboriginal peoples have with the land.
