Welcome to the sixth episode in the Spring Series of Good Will Hunters, which asks, Can Australia be a Sustainability Superpower?

In this episode, Dermot speaks to three formidable female leaders. Our guests are Cissy Gore-Birch, Sheridan Waitai and Sangeeta Mangubhai.
Cissy is a Jaru/Kiji woman and the Executive Manager Aboriginal Engagement at Bush Heritage Australia.
Sheridan is the Executive Director Strategic Relationships and Innovation at Ngāti Kuri Trust Board. Her tribal affiliations are Ngāti Kuri, Te Rarawa, and Tainui.
Sangeeta is Director of the Wildlife Conservation Society’s Fiji Country Program. She holds a Doctor of Philosophy in coral reef ecology.
This episode is a conversation between three passionate leaders on importance of indigenous ecological knowledge, building resilience to climate change, the importance of gender in conservation, and why traditional ecological knowledge must be at the heart of managing country – whether it is in Australia, NZ, or the Pacific.
