About this page

Without water, you die.

Our work with environmental organisations celebrates the environments they protect, and the positive interactions they foster between humans and our eco-system.

We provide web services to Catchment Management Authorities (links open in new window):

We also work on specific environmental projects, for example:

 

Climate change

No matter how resourceful we humans may be, we rely on the stability of our weather. More frequent extreme weather events have a major impact on our ability to lead happy lives. 

At Boojum, we have installed solar electricity and solar hot water heating, LED low wattage lights, and rainwater tanks, and we use bicycles and public transport to get around where practicable.

Individual action is encouraging, especially when you consider that the Australian public has embraced energy and water-saving measures more enthusiastically than governments expected.

But we need system-wide changes that re-jig the economics of pollution in favour of environmentally sustainable solutions.
