Chris Dickman on Australia’s arid-dry zone

Below is a video package of a chat we had with Chris Dickman last week.

He has since left for what will be one of over a hundred research trips to the Simpson Desert. 

As mentioned in the clip he and his team are investigating the benefits of feral predator removal, the role of small wooded plant life, the importance of local-regional dynamics and biotic interactions and the impacts of grazing on biodiversity in the arid dry-zone.

We hear about how to imagine being in the desert, his motivations, reflections on our connection with the land and the importance of conservation.
