Book Launch: Life in the Pindan

Join us for the launch of our new publication, Life in the Pindan – an introduction to the nature of the west Kimberley to hear from Author, Pat Lowe and EK's, Martin Pritchard and Christine Elsasser about how and why this book came into being. The evening's conversation will be facilitated by the warm and funny, Shane Hughes and there will be a chance to ask questions at the end.

The Kimberley holds part of Northern Australia’s vast landscape of savannah, the most extensive, most intact in the world. With 70% of the world’s tropical savannah under crops or concrete, time is running out to save what’s left.

The Pindan, a savannah landscape of shrubland and woodland, is a treasure-house of wildlife, little known or explored by visitors to the Kimberley, or even most non-indigenous residents. Often overlooked by people used to towering trees and rainforests, the Pindan is surprisingly varied and rewards close attention. And, like so many other landscapes, it is under threat. 

This book offers non-specialists a glimpse into this undervalued ecosystem and others neighbouring it, showing the reader how interdependent natural systems are. 

Life in the Pindan will be available to purchase during the event. It is also available now from the EK shop.
