The cycle of life in the Gwydir Wetlands recently inspired a new dance from members of the Clontarf Academy at Armidale High School.

The 'Ibis Dance' was choreographed and recorded as part of a partnership project between the Armidale Clontarf Academy and the NSW Office of Environment and Heritage (OEH). The partnership project was an opportunity to share insights and learn from one another. To the local Kamilaroi Aboriginal people, the Gwydir River, its floodplain and wetlands (west of Moree) are a significant part of their heritage and connection to country.
