Return of the Erawirung crayfish

A lost totem of the Erawirung people, the Murray crayfish, has returned to SA waters, despite being made extinct in the area due to pollution, overfishing and river regulation.

On May 16, 200 crays were relocated from parts of the NSW and ACT run of the Murray River with ongoing monitoring to be undertaken by the River Murray Mallee Aboriginal Corporation (RMMAC) rangers.

Erawirung man and ranger coordinator for the River Murray and Malle Aboriginal Corporation, Glenn Chisholm, joins the program to discuss the significance of the returned totem crays.
