The Clarence River is the biggest volume waterway in Australia. I’ve felt the tangible connection between here and home, where a spring-fed creek bubbles through the bottom of my garden in the rainforest, to where I’ve been exploring today; the tidal Clarence—green aqua of mangrove forests, so exotic!
The Clarence also lays claim to having the largest river island in the Southern hemisphere!! (I'm pretty sure it’s Palmer Is.)
It is so important to me to protect this river system from the fountainheads to the sea. I cannot believe that we are having to fight our governments, our police, our media before we can even begin to hold big businesses accountable for CRIMES AGAINST NATURE! It's INSANITY!
Being in nature exploring, enjoying, gives so much to the soul.
Maybe the biggest help to protecting the planet from human greed is to facilitate reconnection to nature for all those poor lost people who think that the best times are paid for with lots of money…
