Unravelling underwater habitats through sounds and understanding heritage to improve burning programs.

The song of the reef

Dr Miles Parsons (Research Scientist, Australian Institute of Marine Science)
Underwater habitats are rich with biological sounds. If you’d like to hear disgruntled damselfish and know what listening to it can tell us about our Ningaloo Reef, come and hear Dr. Parsons talk on the soundscapes of the underwater world.

Dr Sven Ouzman (Director of Teaching, Learning and Student Matters, Social Sciences, Centre for Rock Art Research + Management, University of Western Australia)
Pyroscapes are a threat to lives, livelihoods, habitats and heritage. Recent work with Indigenous rangers shows how modified burning programmes over 32,000 km2 and more than 1400 heritage sites produces good outcomes for heritage and human health.
