For International Women’s Day we asked the women in our business what they were passionate about and we received an inspiring array of responses.

Amongst these was Vanessa Cavanagh’s passion for Aboriginal leadership. We dug a bit deeper and discovered an uplifting and truly inspirational story.

Today, August 9th, is the International Day of the World's Indigenous Peoples and marks the 10th Anniversary of the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples that aims to promote and protect the rights of the world's indigenous population.  It’s therefore fitting for Vanessa, the Eco Logical Australia Project Manager of the Aboriginal Riverkeeper Team, to share with you her passion of Aboriginal leadership and the inspirational story of the Aboriginal Riverkeeper Team project. 

The two videos below detail Vanessa’s passion and then the amazing story and achievements of the Riverkeeper project.
