Quiz answers

Every Thursday we publish a five-question Quiz, testing your knowledge of trivia, loosely related to the environment, water and natural resource management world.

The Questions are published (along with lots of great job opportunities) in the weekly NRMjobs email Bulletin.

There is no prize, except pride. The rules are: no Googling, but you can phone a friend.
