Dr John Sinclair AO, founder of the Fraser Island Defenders Organisation (FIDO), died on 3rd February 2019. FIDO is honouring the outstanding contribution John made to conservation generally, and Fraser Island (K’Gari) in particular, by establishing the John Sinclair Memorial Lecture.
This pioneering conservationist spent decades fighting first sand mining and then logging on K’Gari before it was World Heritage Listed in 1992.
The inaugural Lecture will be delivered by renowned conservationist Dr Aila Keto AO, Founder and President of the Australian Rainforest Conservation Society.
The inaugural John Sinclair Memorial Lecture will be held at 2PM on Saturday, 7th March 2020, at the Masonic Grand Lodge, 311 Ann Street, Brisbane. Tickets to the event (including light refreshments) cost $25 and can be purchased through the FIDO registration page linked below.
