And the bush has friends to meet him, and their kindly voices greet him, In the murmur of the breezes and the river on its bars,
And he sees the vision splendid of the sunlit plains extended, And at night the wonderous glory of the everlasting stars.

Banjo Paterson (1889)

The Plight of Australian Birds

It's a sad story, one that is probably echoed in many places of the world, but one that is happening in Australia without many people even knowing about it. Unfortunately, I have seen it first hand in the Gascoyne and Murchison areas of Western Australia.

Hi Richard

I worked with some of the guys who were on the Western Shield 1080 baiting programme a few years ago - has this stopped?
