Bruce's last sentence is indeed interesting and surprising. I watched it to and didn't pick that point. I do wonder though the extent to which the questions are pre determined, as Tony Jones so often seems to know "the next question is on the same topic and it is from.........."

Yes, Con,
I did not acknowledge Government, academic or volunteer contributions, including the great work being done by our colleagues at Mulligans Flat.
My concern is that nationally, it is too little, too late and is not keeping up with the threatening processes. Small to medium sized mammals and frogs are generally in real trouble, and emerging  issues of cattle grazing & sporting shooters in national parks and moves to reduce “green tape” are just alarming.
Somehow recently, environment & conservation issues seem to have dropped off the political agenda! There was NOT ONE QUESTION  to the PM from the very well informed students on Q & A last Monday on the environment or climate change.
