We were pleased to be there when Daryn McKenny from Miromaa Aboriginal Language & Technology Centre recorded humpback whale songs aboard our boat, Atmos, for this documentary with ABC TV + iview.

Daryn explains how "language is a gateway to our knowledge systems... which has helped us to learn about country and the environment".

It's Threatened Species Thursday, and we just had to share this adorable footage taken on the edge of Newcastle near Mount Sugarloaf - showing how important this area is for Koalas.

Recent surveys here by Miromaa Aboriginal Language & Technology Centre revealed outstanding numbers of Koalas along waterways – far exceeding initial expectations!

Hunter Local Land Services is working with landholders across the Hunter and Mid Coast to protect Koalas by supporting revegetation, cultural burning and habitat improvement projects.

Our Biosecurity team is also working directly with the Miromaa group, providing advice and support to protect other native fauna in the reserve.

If you’re interested to plant trees for Koalas, you can watch our webinar on revegetation in the Hunter available here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YIk15naV_lw

I wish Alex all the best on his quest to raise $10,000 for the Australian Literacy & Numeracy Foundation's First Language literacy program, which provide people in remote Indigenous communities with access to resources to document, conserve and learn their languages.

It is important that these languages continue to be spoken and taught and we do not lose them forever.

Listen in, be inspired by Gerry Turpin, a Mbabaram Traditional Owner who is 'as far as he knows' the first fully trained Indigenous Ethnobotanist in Australia. Gerry has helped seed and lead groundbreaking research that bridges two worlds and empowers Elders and communities to research, record, protect and derive value from their plant and cultural knowledge and to share it in ways they want.

This is the final deep dive, long lens conversation for Nourishing Matters 2022. It's one that book ends the series since its inception in late 2019 when I was blown away by Gerry's keynote presentation at PULiiMA 2019 and the power of his work for culture, community, environment and food sovereignty.

An amazing opportunity to share and learn from the Far West Rangers in SA and the Tjaltjraak Rangers WA as we all came together in Ceduna SA, a huge topic for this big week back in August was data collection and mapping country(supported by IMW Australia) and the role langauge centres can play and are there supporting this amazing on country work by our Rangers and Communities. We can not explain how much admiration we have for their devotion to sea and land country management. If only someone had brought some firewood to have kept us warm when flying the thermal drone late at night.

Lake Macquarie introduces dual names for cultural facilities in Australian first 01/10/2021

We know we are a quiet lot on FB, anyway we hope our local community like this project which we supported Lake Macquarie City Council with, we congratulate them for their bravery in doing this in the manner they have

We are all on a language journey, and each year we ourselves discover more secrets about the languages of here, and the unique sounds and rich meanings within. Our own work evolves as we constantly challange and question it, you can't bring back a language overnight, unfortunately it can take years and for many decades

We also do not take for granted the simple and purposed translations and spellings which happened in the 1830's, whilst they have formed the foundation of our work they are not the rule, but we are brave to put every effort we can so that the unique and rich words and phrases of not just here but all of our languages can be once again heard, spoken and sung with the manner in which they originally were and we now hope will once again be

Each word is knowledge and knowledge is "our everything", as such we will continue to do everything we can to help get this right of seeing and using our languages in a world they were not originally part of, but are needed to be
