Brisbane 2011: Living with Floods and Dancing with Dugongs: Part 14- The Dugong Rock

The seminar was rounded off by some dancing with Dewey the Dugong, thanks to Dr. Peter Oliver who wrote and performed ‘Dugong Rock’. Peter also inspired the dancing with his Dugong Rock competition. Also, thanks to Dr. Tanzi Smith, a former University of Queensland student now working in the Mary River Catchment, who drove Dewey all the way down to Brisbane for his performance. And finally, thanks to all of the brave souls who shed their inhibitions for three minutes and joined Dewey in ‘Dugong Rock’ at the Customs House.
