“All of us together, looking after country” “Ŋilmurru bukmak djäka wäŋawu”
In 2018, Sea Shepherd joined forces with the Dhimurru indigenous rangers of North-East Arnhem Land, Northern Territory for a remote marine debris clean-up mission.
Djulpan is a remote beach, far from any town or city. It is a culturally significant place for the Yolngu people and an important nesting ground for turtles.
However for the past decade, the Dhimurru rangers have been faced with an increasing tide of plastic pollution arriving on their coastline.
Together, the teams plan was to remove as much plastic from the beach as possible but what they uncovered was the sad reality of plastic pollution today.
This film tells their story.
This special event will feature talks from Liza Dicks, Sea Shepherd Australia's Arnhem Marine Debris Campaign Leader and guest speakers all the way from Arnhem Land, Lirrpiya Mununggurr and Yama Bamu from the Dhimurru Aboriginal Corporation.
A Q&A session will follow the screening.
Tickets $10+booking fee.
