In mid-December the North East Catchment Management Authority attended the Australian Institute for Alpine Studies Symposium to share research related to Mountain Pygmy-possum Recovery in the Victorian Alps.
The symposium was held in Jindabyne, and was opened by Gnublum-John Dixon (Ngario elder) sharing a welcome to country and smoke ceremony using various types of eucalyptus leaves, each releasing a distinct smell and smoke.
The symposium was well attended with presenters and participants arriving from Victoria, NSW, and the ACT, all contributing to a packed agenda of sessions related to:
- Caring for mountain ecosystems
- Mountain plant ecology
- Mountain fauna
- Mountain soils and hydrology
