Send a message of thanks and congratulations to Jeffrey Lee at: ecnt.org/awinforkakadu In 2013 -- after decades of fighting -- Djok Elder Jeffrey Lee successfully ended the threat of uranium mining on his country. His land at Koongarra has been included in the World Heritage listed Kakadu National Park in Australia's Northern Territory - and permanently protected from mining. The protection of Koongarra is a powerful recognition of Jeffrey's vision and a lasting victory for both Aboriginal and environmental rights. Jeffrey's country is now safe but Kakadu is not. Mirarr country to the north of Koongarra is still threatened by uranium mining. The victory at Koongarra is extraordinary but as Jeffrey has made clear, more needs to be done: "I hope that one day Kakadu will be truly complete with the Mirarr lands at Ranger and Jabiluka included in the National Park."

Written language only began at around 3200 BC, but spoken language has existed long ago. Learning by listening is a great way to: - increases imagination and understanding - improves your listening skills - improves your own spoken accent - learn while on the move - reduce eye strain Now learn the vast amount of general knowledge available on Wikipedia through audio (audio article). You could even learn subconsciously by playing the audio while you are sleeping! If you are planning to listen a lot, you could try using a bone conduction headphone, or a standard speaker instead of an earphone.
