On the first of our Water Justice Hub Researcher’s series, we talk with Dr. Anne Poelina: Chair of the Martuwarra Fitzroy River Council, Adjunct Professor and Senior Research Fellow at the Nulungu Research Institute at the University of Notre Dame and Managing Director of the Indigenous not-for-profit organisation Madjulla.
