A short video about Murujuga on the Burrup Peninsula, near Karratha, which has the oldest and largest collection of rock art petroglyths in the world. Since the 1960’s, the Western Australian government have earmarked the Peninsula as an industrial zone, destroying much of the art work. Recent studies have found the remaining rock art is being damaged by industrial pollution. A current Senate enquiry is looking into how this important art site can be protected.
