It will be sad to see the end of "Australian Birding", not only from a
birder's point of view. We have few publications that focus on the South
Pacific as a region. There is little interaction between Australians and the
peoples of this area until some disaster, natural or political, happens. We
supply aid in one form or other but learn little of local social conditions.
Even the slight feedback from visiting birdos is an advantage for us and
perhaps also for those visited.  

But,unless magazines can attract advertising from the business and corporate
world, costs will always force closure (witness "Birds International" a few
years ago). Recognition of the value of interaction between us and our near
neighbours seems to be slow in coming to both the business and political
worlds. The Corporate World only looks for the immediate dollar and does not
seem to see the possibilies in the more vague future. A sad pity for all of us.
