Sonia Bennett is a singer, songwriter, artist and bush regenerator. She points out that it is easier and less costly to look after healthy, protected bushland that to fix it after it has been damaged or destroyed.
She has a glorious voice, rich and powerful, with a wonderful falsetto that gives her an enormous range.
