Boorna Waanginy | The Trees Speak
Boorna Waanginy dramatizes the six seasons of Western Australia, the incredible richness and interdependency of the flora and fauna of South West Australia, and the crisis which this ecosystem now faces. It chronicle’s Western Science’s growing understanding of the wisdom and depth of indigenous Noongar knowledge systems and how this understanding can be drawn on by all of us as we grapple with the crisis that we now face – to live sustainably on the land we are a part of - in one of the worlds richest but fragile ecosystems.
