Digital storytelling comes in many formats – our ‘Buffers, Sponges & Moderators’ short film effectively communicates the efforts of our on-ground work to a broader digital audience.

Websites and social media we manage:

  • "I just wanted to say ‘thanks’ again to the ARRC team for doing the fabulous video and blog about the three ibis species. You are all so nice to work with and make things easy and accessible with flair and impact. I hope we do lots more together in the future."
    — Dr. Heather McGinness – Senior Research Scientist, CSIRO Land and Water
  • “RipRap offers a bright, easy-to-read update on the science of various riverine topics- great for scientists, great for managers!”
    — John Koehn, (Arthur Rylah Institute, Victoria)
  • "RipRap is a great read with lots of positive stories of environmental improvement."
    — David Freudenberger
