Interesting to see a quote from a "police wildlife crime officer". Does a "wildlife crimes" unit exist in any police force in Australia? I doubt if one could get any police here interested in "wildlife crime", most would think it is something that occurs in places like Kings Cross or St Kilda.

I know that this subject has just about been done to death by now but here's another example. I was on Mull in Scotland a few months ago and locals were very aggrieved about the actions of a photographer, perceived to have interfered with the breeding of a pair of White- Tailed Sea Eagles. The recent exchanges on Birding-Aus prompted me to see what had transpired, as per the link below. Not a huge sum of money, but action nevertheless and I am sure that there are many more such examples. I suppose that overall debate hinges on stopping the wilful and educating the clumsy.
