We’re delighted to announce that Dr Ian Wright will be our guest speaker at this year’s Sutherland Shire Environment Centre AGM. Ian is a lecturer at Western Sydney University, and a recognised expert in the field of freshwater ecology, water quality, water policy and the science and management of water pollution. He has a long-standing research interest in the impact of coal mining activities on streams and rivers.
Dr Wright was also one of the team who was allowed to visit Woronora Reservoir in 2019, and he saw first hand the damage from the mining operation there.
After Ian’s talk there’ll be a screening of the 25min documentary Mining in the Blue Mountains, followed by a Q&A.
