Letter From the Director David K Mitchell
Welcome to our fifth ECA newsletter for Eco Custodian Advocates, As we enter our third year we can look back and see that we are making both environmental and life impact of our place. Our lead story is on turtle satellite tagging with youth from Ole Island - 1808 Atlas of D’Entrecasteaux voyage. But 2018 is leaning towards an El Nino year and it seems the migration for nesting this season is not on. We look at why not.
We had an Adelaide University student with us in this work who had been drawn by Gwala Rising.
We mutually gained from this experience. Gwala too was shown within PNG, on NBCTV, at a
Conservation Seminar, at UPNG and in the 6th Human Rights Film Festival. Again too much to summarise so please take a look through to see what has been driving us at this time.
