Marion Mullin and linguistic PhD student Amy Budrikis assisted Sue Hanson to man the display and then took part in activities and events over the weekend. Thanks to the Wilderness Society and the Ngaju Rangers for inviting GALC along to the event. We look forward to another in a couple of years time!
