An Aboriginal Thought

Interesting article from the North Queensland Register about the partnership developing between Australia's government and indigenous peoples that are concerned about invasive plants. A liaison officer for the Weeds CRC visits Aboriginal communities in remote parts of the Northern Territory to do public outreach, teaching groups to identify trouble-causing plants and to remove them. You can read more about the program in this weedwatch newsletter (.pdf).
