A Walk in the Mangroves with Linc Walker
The emerald-green mangroves that fringe Cooya Beach have always protected the land on which Linc Walker's family have lived forever. Beyond the beach is a vast shallow sea, pot-holed with the lairs of sting rays. In the distance, a lone Aboriginal fisherman walks, as if on water, grasping a long bamboo spear. "This place has fed my family for generations" Linc says. As we head back onto the tide flats, we're reminded, through this appreciation of Linc's home, that everything from the ocean, to the mountains behind are part of our world. We all share Linc's cultural responsibility to maintain our own connection to country and care for it for generations to come.
