    On the one hand their is absolutely unforgivable sacrilege of a traditional culture.

    On the other hand your only need look at their morphology to see that they have readily indulged in the imperialist culture of excessive consumption of sugar and eating domesticated animal.

    Disgraceful, sue the CEO from damage to sacred place. Should be ashamed of themselves, no wonder wildlife is on decline. Dam the humans !

    They must be held accountable for this destruction. And restore it to its original state.

    Rio Tinto should be made to build a museum on the site with replica caves in conjunction with the traditional owners and historical records

    @Guardian, you should turn ads off on this video. It should not be monetized, unless all of the profits are given to the traditional owners.

    Humans are the greatest scourge on the entire planet. Fix Earth instead of pumping senseless & wasted funds into manned missions to the Moon & Mars.

    Human life is approximately 75 years. These caves were home, sanctuary and a spiritual bridge between the present and past for 46,000 years. These are countless life times from the past, present and future lost in the greed of some soulless humans.
