Why we have to stop ignoring indigenous science and knowledge: Ian Morris (Part1)

Ian Morris is a zoologist, educator, conservationist and author that has worked with the traditional owners of Arnhem Land for decades and speaks Djambarrpuyŋu, Warramirri & Gupapuyŋu – all local Indigenous languages. Today, he works as an environmental consultant and teaches children the importance of indigenous science and knowledge.

He believes: “If you have the right attitude when you are out in the bush, you are not afraid of what might happen to you but you are fascinated by what’s around you.”
