Story

Phil Duncan: "...Opportunity and knowledge create relationships, long lasting relationships...and I think we should never undervalue when science and art come together... the importance of knowledge, the importance of spiritual connection that science underpins. And I don't say that lightly. Science does underpin our cultural values and our cultural connection, and it should be applauded, it should be celebrated because it is the future."

Phil Duncan is a Gomeroi man whose traditional lands are Moree and Terry Hie Hie in New South Wales. He is the Chair of the [Murray Darling] Basin Community Committee and Aboriginal executive on the Australian Freshwater Sciences Society (AFSS) executive committee.
