Dr Will Figueira, Associate Professor at University of Sydney and lead scientist of the Gamay Initiative said “Gamay is rich with natural wonder and cultural significance but sits in an incredibly complicated environmental setting where its ecological health is unfortunately sometimes challenged by its economic importance.”
“We need to bring all forms of knowledge to the table to ensure its long-term health. It was wonderful to see such a large turnout at the event. It’s good to know the bay is in the hands of such caring and engaged people.”
Director Dr Martina Doblin and the SIMS community would like to thank the Gamay Rangers for hosting the evening and for sharing their invaluable knowledge and perspectives. Thanks must also go to the Australian Government Inspiring NSW, Ian Potter Foundation and SIMS Foundation for supporting this National Science Week event.
