Director and CEO Kim McKay chats to Dr Jenny Newell, Manager, East Pacific Collection and Acting Director of Programs, Exhibitions & Cultural Collections at the Australian Museum.

"I’ve started up a network called ‘Museums and Climate Change Network’. It’s really people who work in museums or are involved in museums, thinking about ways of better engaging the public in the issues of climate change and hoping to get some progress, some advance there on trying to address those major problems. And really involving communities, no matter where they are in the world - who have collections in museums - in the struggle." — Dr Jenny Newell.
