To put another twist on the story of the unfortunate Yellow Chat in South Australia.
On the ABC radio today was a report from scientists in Cairns. They predict many extinctions in the wet tropics region if global warming proceeds.Their radical plan was to relocate species further south where presumably temperatures would more match their normal habitat.
Which got me thinking.... perhaps this Yellow Chat was thinking ahead to make such a long journey south.(or it may have been lost?!)
It got there without any government funding,not even a feasability study!!
And then it met a human with a different perspective.
