Ways to support this work

This work is funded by the public via direct donations. There are three usual methods of donation depending on the needs of the donor.

Privacy and your donation

Whether a donor is an individual or an organisation, I take privacy issues seriously. For this reason unless I am given specific instructions about who a donor is and that you are happy for me to share publicly that you are a patron of my work I do not thank individual donors publicly.

Having said this, I believe that the best advertisement for my work is your support. It is much easier for people to believe others when they speak about the value of my work than when I make my own claims about it. Your willingness to share the reason you support my work is what inspires other people to support my work. Please take a moment every now and then and, if you are happy to be seen publicly supporting my work, share that you do with your networks.

In order to progress these negotiations, CSIRO will:-convene and fund negotiation and community meetings, including covering all costs associated with the meeting and the provision of travel allowances for the Wajarri Yamatji native title claimants (the Claimants) to attend the meetings;-cover costs of the Claimants- legal representation; and -attend to other administrative requirements, as agreed by the Commonwealth and CSIRO, during the negotiations. To satisfy the requirements of the Aboriginal Heritage Act 1972 (WA) (AHA), CSIRO will:-engage a supplier to undertake Indigenous heritage surveys on parts of the MRO land and Boolardy Station pastoral land. The surveys may include ethnographic and archaeological site identification and/or site avoidance surveys;-engage a project manager to work with the supplier and coordinate the surveys on the MRO land and Boolardy Station pastoral land - for example to ensure radio quiet and other protocols are complied with; and-attend to other administrative requirements, as agreed by the Commonwealth and CSIRO, during the work conducted under the terms of this Grant for compliance with the AHA.Environmental requirements:Before SKA1 construction can commence an environmental clearance permit needs to be sought from the WA Environment Protection Authority (EPA), according to the terms of the environmental referral decision received in March 2017 (case number CMS 17015). If funding is available, CSIRO will draft and submit the permit. $1,000,000
