Here’s one of the many inspiring people who are doing great work across the biologically richest corner of the Australian continent.

Alison Lullfitz is a PhD student in the field of ethnobotany, based at the UWA – Albany Centre.

“By working collaboratively with Noongar Traditional Owners and archaeologists on a range of investigations, my ethnobotanical research explores interactions between South West Australia’s earliest human inhabitants and its flora.

It’s focused in the Esperance and Pallinup River areas, country of the Esperance Nyungar, Menang and Goreng people, and involves on country consultation with Elders and archaeologists, plant DNA analysis, and field-based experimentation and survey.”
