Speaker: Buddhie Nanayakkara, Gordon Group, E&E, RSB
E. coli is widely used as an indicator of faecal contamination of water. The assumptions that it is unable to multiply outside a host and is not present in the absence of faecal contamination are among the criteria used for its selection as an indicator.

Speaker: Ruth Wallace, College of Indigenous Futures, Arts and Society, Charles Darwin University
Indigenous Leader Eddie Fry has challenged us to think about a 50 year plan and ‘the Indigenous Estate lifted beyond current perceptions of what is possible in Indigenous Australia’.  Northern Australia has many advantages and can lead development and change in the region.

Speaker: Bethany Hoye, University of Wollongong
Migratory animals, in their billions, uniquely couple ecological communities across the globe. Given that most animal migrations are disappearing or are in steep decline due to human activities, there is a growing imperative to understand the consequences of these declines for ecosystem function.
