We are back from an epic week adventure in the Karlamilyi National park with Martu elders and people from across the country. The experience was out of this world – the group was so strong and amazing, the country spectacular. The threat of the Kintyre uranium mine to the ecosystem, the intricate network of water sources is immense. A massive thank you to all of you who donated, supported, came along, shared or followed this walk. There is nothing like being out on country to understand the enormity of the threat. You can check out photo’s here.
