Tom Brinkworth was the inspiration behind conservation and the exemplar for the compatibility of hunting and conservation.
His works in South Australia’s Watervalley created a conservation project that grew at 10 acres per day and was inclusive of not only duck hunters but academics, bird watchers, campers and any other wetland user.
To meet and see Tom in the camp, you wouldn’t have known he was the man behind everything we came to South Australia to enjoy.
Duck opening eve Tom would stand in an unassuming way proud of his living legacy while watching it all unfold. His legacy will continue and we know Tom will be watching it happen again from a higher Hunting ground.
We thank Tom for all he’s given us and our thoughts are now with Patricia and the Brinkworth family
"Never, Never, Never Give Up"
