There is a conflict brewing between Traditional Owners and Energy companies. Yulleroo is the story of Micklo Corpus, a Yawuru Traditional Owner who is spearheading the fight to protect his country from hydraulic fracking. To some Micklo is a lone fanatic; to many he is a hero and protector of his country, willing to stand up when others aren’t. This is his story.
