Kokatat’s Faux to Explore Kimberly

-

- Advertisment -

In early March, Tanya Faux will lead a team into Australia’s Kimberley Range to explore the uncharted water of the Moran and Mitchell Rivers. Both rivers have yet to see paddle.

Tanya and her team will spend 24 days exploring the environment and experiencing the historical and indigenous heritage elements significant to the region, as well as use footage and website coverage of the expedition to promote the Save the Kimberley Campaign.

The exquisite Kimberley Range and surrounding region in Western Australia is one of the last places in the world considered truly wild. It’s a land teeming with indigenous spirit and rock art, and is home to some of Australia’s greatest waterfalls and whitewater rapids.

Recently there has been much political interest in the Kimberley. Peter Garrett, Federal Minister for the Environment, released a statement for a ‘Big Picture Study of Australia’s Kimberley’. The Kimberley holds massive reserves of oil and liquefied natural gas, and is very vulnerable to increasing domestic and international pressure for industrial development.

“We hope to share the magical magnitude of the Kimberley with fellow Australians and the world,” Faux says. “Many people don’t know this land exists and we have a chance to save it, preserving a vast tract of this historical wilderness in a world heritage site.”
