What better time to celebrate World Wetlands Day than after the Top End’s wettest January since 1904? The Northern Hub travelled around flooded wetlands to Kakadu National Park’s World Wetlands Day festivities at their Bowali Visitor Centre on Saturday. The event was the perfect place to showcase the Hub’s current and past wetlands research. The kids loved looking down the microscope at barramundi ear bones that can tell you how old a fish is, and this animation by Hub researcher David Crook showing movements of a single barra around Kakadu’s floodplains during the wet was a big hit especially with all the fishers.
