Monthly Meeting - Belief, Belonging, Behaviour: Foundations for an Australian River Restoration Centre
By Dr Siwan Lovett
Australia is a continent of incredible diversity, with rainforests, deserts, tropical savannahs and mountain ranges. This diversity is reflected in the many different types of rivers, streams and creeks that are the lifeblood of a dry and thirsty continent. Currently, however, we know that only about one third of Australia’s river systems remain in first-rate condition, another third show clear signs of degradation and, the remainder are already in poor condition and getting worse. Without water and the river systems that sustain its quality, our rural, urban and unique ecological communities cannot survive.
