In this episode, James chats to Zena Cumpston, a Barkandji woman and research fellow at the University of Melbourne, to find out all about eels that still make their way through the drains of the university, following old watercourses buried under the concrete. Zena tells us about her research on Indigenous knowledge and the importance of learning about our pre-invasion environment. Find out more at The Living Pavillion.
On the other side of the continent, Dr Nerida Wilson, Senior Research Scientist at the Western Australian Museum, is part of a new project calling for people to search for seadragons. Seadragons are some of the most wonderful and unique inhabitants of southern Australia's oceans, but we still know surprisingly little about them. You can help scientists learn more about them by sending in photos of any seadragons you see. Find out more at Seadragon Search.
