  • Brian Moreton Coghill

    I have a degree in Environmental Management from Griffith University, I have also studied in Archeology and Anthropology. But most significantly I also have a 'Degree' in my living Cultural knowledge handed down to me by my Uncles, Aunties and Grandfathers. In this way I have skills and experience in Environmental Management from two different Cultures. Using this combined knowledge, I will impart to you some of my Indigenous knowledge of the "Quandamooka" environment which is also contextualised in a western scientific framework.
