To be held on Thursday June 30th,
6.15 for 6.30 - 7.30pm
You are invited to join us in the Conference Room at the Hinterland Business Centre for an evening presentation by past Barung Coordinator John Muir. He will provide photos and commentary on his experiences as a volunteer with Australian Volunteers International and various NGO's, aid donors and private companies as a consultant in Cambodia spanning the time of the 1993 UN elections up to today. He has worked with Oxfam, WCS, AUSAID, ACIAR, the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust and Birdlife International.
One of John's projects has involved growing organic rice on the Mekong delta (where 20% of the world's rice crop is grown, certified Wildlife Friendly) as well as working with the Wildlife Conservation Society on habitat protection around the Tonie Sap Lake and its floodplains. The floodplains include the largest continuous areas of natural wetlands habitats remaining in the Mekong system. Over 27% (2 million hectares) of Cambodia's remaining tropical and deciduous forests have been cleared in the last 24 years.
We are very grateful that John has taken the time to give this talk in the short time he has available before returning to Cambodia to undertake a new project early next month.
