Why we have to stop ignoring indigenous science and knowledge: Ian Morris (Part2)
/
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.” This Episode of Talking Australia is hosted by Liz Ginis (Managing Editor Digital at Australian Geographic) and produced by Ben Kanthak (www.beachshackpodcasts.com).   You can also follow us on Instagram @australiangeographic
