In botany, the understorey is the area of a forest which grows at the lowest level below the forest canopy. It’s a fitting title for a program dedicated to the environment, because much like the understorey itself, without care and protection, the environment faces catastrophic peril. RTRFM’s dedicated environment program focuses on issues that are of concern to anyone who believes that our environment requires our attention and assistance. Covering local issues and dealing with stories and places that are of
great importance to the West Australian community, Understorey attempts to highlight those environmental issues that aren’t on the agenda of other media. With interviews and in-depth discussions of the biological, climatic and social issues facing our environment, Understorey advocates citizen science, connects listeners with local ecological issues, and addresses environmental policy, regulation and governance in an informative and insightful manner.
