Phd Candidate Andrew Cooper recently spent some time up here in the Pilbara researching the movements of the old people on country, the plants and animals available to them, and what times they are available during the year. He produced this poster for use in the local primary schools. We thank Andrew for his valuable work and wish him all the best for the completion of his thesis.
