Wetland Wander is an art-science collaboration led by wetland ecologist Fernanda Adame, sound artist Leah Barclay, walking/media artist James Cunningham, and multimedia artist Suzon Fuks. It incorporates knowledge from current and traditional landowners within Quandamooka (Moreton Bay), and Nywaigi, Gulgnay and Girramay countries (Queensland, Australia).

Wetlands are one of the most valuable ecosystems on Earth. They store three times more carbon than terrestrial forests, improve water quality, and are home to a diversity of species. Wetland Wander aims to inspire engagement and conservation of these critical ecosystems.

This project has been supported by the Queensland Government through the Advance Queensland Program for Engaging Science and an Advance Queensland Fellowship, and by Griffith University Queensland Conservatorium Research Centre. We also thank The Australian Rivers Institute at Griffith University and the Wetlands Program for their support.

Offical Exhibition Opening Friday 10 August, 6–8pm with reception and presentations.
