The last week on birding-aus has got me thoroughly depressed about the state of the environment and the value placed on it by politicians and other authorities in Australia, especially at state level.

We've had more news about duck hunting in Victoria, news about possible logging in national parks in NSW to add to the folly of amateur hunting in the nat parks, the possibility of logging on Bruny Island in Tassie, and the horrific details of the Qld govt's plans, and burn-off cockups in SA wiping out habitat of vulnerable and endangered birds.

Is there any good news from WA or NT coz it's not coming from elsewhere???

I will of course write to MPs, sign petitions, etc, but what is so profoundly depressing is that so little of the population at large and apparently even fewer politicians actually care.
