‘Breathing Life into Boodja’ film + Live Q&A
Next event Tuesday 13 Jul from 6:45pm to 8:30pm
A Gondwana Link film presented by Nature Conservation Margaret River Region and the Undalup Association.
Join us for an evening of hope and inspiration.
The film ‘Breathing Life into Boodja’ (48 minutes) is a good-humoured and galvanising portrayal of farmers, scientists, environmentalists, the Aboriginal community and local groups working together for the environment and wildlife. Through restoring nature, respecting culture and renewing communities, these people and groups are leading globally significant change across southern WA.
Nature Conservation and Undalup are hosting this film event to promote the Margaret River region’s participation as the western ‘pillar’ in the visionary Gondwana Link program. We can help to achieve the vision of ‘healthy, reconnected bush across 1,000 km, from the tall wet coastal forests of the far south-west corner to the dry woodlands of the interior’. A broad range of local, regional, national and international groups, private landholders, businesses and First Nation communities are involved in this inspiring work.
Leading into the screening of ‘Boodja’, the evening’s entertaining program includes:
- Presentations by Iszaac Webb, Undalup Association Chair and Wadandi Cultural Custodian, and Gondwana Link CEO Keith Bradby
- A 16 minute compilation of video stories from across Gondwana Link, produced for the new WA Museum Boola Bardip
- Q&A panel to explore ‘where to from here’ for the Margaret River region as a participant in the unfolding Gondwana Link story
