The AAA recently responded to the South Australian government regarding our organisation’s opposition to the proposed sale of waterfront Crown Land on Kangaroo Island.  The Crown Land contains a registered Aboriginal archaeological site, and the local geomorphology has high potential for additional buried archaeological sites.  See the AAA media release below:

We are happy to report that the SA government has rejected the sale of the Crown Land.  The AAA joined 775 submissions opposed to the sale of the land, highlighting its important archaeological conservation values (only 5 submissions supported the proposed sale).  See the story here:
