Grantham
The day that changed Grantham – ‘Within two minutes it went from being no water out in the street to being waist deep inside the shop.’ When Queensland went under water in January this year the tiny town of Grantham suffered the greatest loss of life: 12 people died. The locals clung to fences, floated on top of cars and supported each other to survive the unexpected and sudden wall of muddy water and debris that inundated their town.

Kingaroy
Kingaroy in southeast Queensland is feeling the impact of long term climate change and peanuts just don’t grow there like they used to. While peanut silos still dominate the skyline, and it remains a processing hub, Kingaroy now produces only a fraction of the peanuts it used to grow.

Listening to nature – Animal sounds and bird song have adapted to specific environments and habitats, but the use of sound has in turn shaped the evolution of different species. And that includes homo sapiens. Sound has formed us as social and cultural ‘animals’.
