Re Lorne's posting:

>Some bad facts from the A.C.F. ...
* More than 5 million birds are killed each year in Australia due to
land clearing.

Perhaps someone out there who has seen this statement could enlighten me
about how the ACF calculated it?  Presumably there is also a statistic on
those species that benefit from land clearance too - "x birds per year are
born due to land clearance"?
