This year, the Australian Geographic Society recognised the incredible conservation work of Atticus Fleming, the Numbat Task Force and Sophia Skaparis, as well as the incredible adventurers of Syd Kirkby, Steve Plain, Paul Pritchard and Jade Hameister. If you weren’t there to celebrate with us, here are some snippets of the night of nights.
On Friday, 26 October 2018, we celebrated the achievements of some of Australia’s greatest conservationists and adventurers at the annual Australian Geographic Society Gala Awards night in Sydney, with special guests, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
