On Friday the 31st of March the ALC's accomplished Anthropologist Leslie Pyne, attended the NT Young Achievers Award ceremony in Darwin. Leslie was a finalist for the Conoco Phillips Environment Award. Unfortunately she was unsuccessful in her individual category, but instead walked away with the "People's Choice Award". The ALC Board and staff are very proud of her achievement. Leslie would like to express her thanks to the Anindilyakwa Land Council for supporting her attendance at the event and to everyone who voted for her across continents.
