In February I travelled to Kalgoorlie in outback Western Australia to deliver the first inflatable ear for use by
Indigenous Health groups to help educate youth about maintaining good health, ear, eye and nose problems -
these being extremely problematic.

Raya’s doctors office.

In July we spent John’s birthday in Sydney checking out the art. Also in July our friend Martin
Keeley from Cayman Islands, a world expert on mangroves visited us with his partner Kevian. We travelled
to Bundaberg in Queensland where Martin presented his mangrove educational program to various schools,
eventually this will become part of the schools curriculum.

a third ear/nose inflatable has also been commissioned for a health dept in Darwin, this will be
delivered after the wet season.

Yaga chicken house was a big hit!

Our wonderful friend Gabriella, who is visiting Australia from Vancouver, took the crocodile out into the
harsh environment of Arhnem Land in the Northern Territory. Here main reason for being in such an
isolated location was to view the solar eclipse. Whilst there she told some wonderful stories inside the
croc to local Indigenous youth, who by all accounts had a great time. All this in 40 degree heat!
