Congratulations Penny Olsen and Lynette Russell for the publication of ‘Australia’s First Naturalists: Indigenous People’s Contrubution to early Zoology’

Congratulations Penny Olsen and AHA memberLynette Russell on the upcoming publication of Australia’s First Naturalists: Indigenous People’s Contrubution to early Zoology (NLA, 2019). The book gathers together Aboriginal peoples’ contributions to demonstrate the crucial role they played in early Australian zoology. The writings of the early European naturalists clearly describe the valuable knowledge of the Indigenous people of the habits of Australia’s bizarre (to a European) fauna.
