The latest on all our expeditions, projects and campaigns.
OUR ANNUAL AGS awards ceremony is always an exciting time when we celebrate those who have made significant achievements in the field of adventure and conservation – and it’s also the Society’s major fundraising event. I’m thrilled to announce that this year will be more exciting than most, because we have secured a very special guest speaker: award-winning Canadian scientist, environmentalist and broadcaster Dr David Suzuki. In January we honoured David as one of the 30 conservationists who have had a profound impact on Australians since this journal was launched in 1986. David was originally a geneticist and has long been an environmentalist of international influence. Twenty-five years ago, he founded the non-profit David Suzuki Foundation to promote protection of the environment. David is an advocate of the idea that getting out into nature can calm and heal us, soothing our brains, and improving both our physical health and psychological resilience – a concept with which we at Australian Geographic very much agree! We’d love you to join us in Sydney on 27 October to hear more of David’s ideas. Tickets will sell fast! To book yours now, see the opposite page.
