Mission Critical – is saving our planet still possible?

Dr John Sinclair AO, founder of the Fraser Island Defenders Organisation (FIDO) died on 3rd February 2019.

FIDO is honoring the outstanding contribution John made to conservation generally, and Fraser Island (K’Gari) in particular, by establishing the John Sinclair Memorial Lecture.

This pioneering conservationist spent decades fighting first sand mining and then logging on K’Gari before it was World Heritage Listed in 1992.

The Inaugural Lecture will be delivered by renowned conservationist Dr Aila Keto AO, Founder and President of the Australian Rainforest Conservation Society.

FIDO hopes the John Sinclair Memorial Lecture will become established as an ongoing event providing a forum for the promotion of public awareness in relation to the significant environmental issues of the day.
