I don't think anyone has mentioned Channel 10's TV show "Totally
Wild" - broadcast in Melbourne at 4pm Monday-Thursday. Often has
good items for young (and old!) people and is a pretty good
substitute for getting in touch with nature.

A huge problem with that in our area is that the remnant
wildlife is so precious that we can't afford to have kids taking
the taddies (though they are welcome to the cabbage white

I urge every Victorian to respond to "Challenge Melbourne" -
20-30 year strategic planning exercise by the State government.
Tell them we need lots of local City nature reserves designed
for educational purposes etc. etc.
