Voices of the River is an award-winning documentary web series that showcases the inspiring and powerful words from Traditional Owners along the Martuwarra Fitzroy River and their fight to protect the River from large-scale water extraction.

The 10-part series aims to share the cultural and environmental importance of the Martuwarra, Australia's largest Aboriginal Heritage site, stretching over 700kms in WA's Kimberley region. 

Current proposals to pump more than 300 billion litres of surface water from the Fitzroy River will cause irreversible damage to the Martuwarra and its precious Aboriginal Heritage, potentially turning it into the next Murray-Darling.
