Dear All,

On the ABC's 7.30 Report tonight there was an interesting item. The Queensland, government in it's wisdom, has cancelled it's captive breeding program for the Eastern Bristlebird. It seems that the poor old Bristlebird is a victim of the global economic downturn. The Qld Government's line is that it is better to concentrate on habitat conservation and let the BB fend for itself. John Young appeared on the segment and spoke out strongly against the cancellation.

The segment can be viewed at
