Forgotten River 2: Piggy in the middle
Play • 37 min
Caught between thirsty cash croppers upstream and down, the people who live along the Darling/Barka are fighting a battle on two fronts. Years of drought and no flow events build an underlying stress and tension along the river, which is only relieved when flow is restored. In episode two of Forgotten River we meet the communities between Wentworth and Pooncarie who are tired of their environment and livelihoods being overlooked.
