Kate McBride is a fifth-generation pastoralist and the daughter of Rob McBride, owner of Tolarno Station (@TolarnoStation) at Menindee in Western NSW.

Together with her father she brought the ecological disaster unfolding on the Darling River to the world’s attention with a viral video of the Menindee fish kill.

Kate spoke to Wayne Jansson (@Jansant) about what it’s like to watch a river dying, and the impacts on the people that rely on it.

With the fish kills we’ve had, we really need this natural fish nursery.

Without the river they [Barkindji] can’t pass that culture on, they can’t pass those stories or anything on.
