G'day from Queensland,
Just a quick note to advertise our 'web-pages for anyone interested in the 
birds and wildlife of our sadly neglected region, Unfortunately our new 
State government appear to have a particular dislike of 'conservationists' 
and are accelerating development at the expense of the environment.
Yesterday our State Premiere alledgedly expressed annoyance that land had 
been set-aside for a particularly rare species of frog (Mixophytes fleayii) 
at the expense of the land-owner (a so-called 'honest aussie battler') and 
will try to disband any organisations set up to protect rare species.
We are desperately trying to promote eco-tourism and have a great base to 
work from, (I have seen over 400 species of birds in Southern Queensland 
over 10 years and one can expect around 300 species within 3 hour drive of 
Even if your not planning a visit, please take a look and give us some 
feedback, hopefully we can get something going here.
