And the answer to that I guess is because neither of the major parties seem
to make it a priority - and the reason they do not is that it is not in
general a vote winner because most people unfortunately do not care much -
one sees periodical surveys of what issues people regard as important when
choosing who to vote for and conservation/environment issues are usually
way down the list.
Now if all BirdingAus readers moved to a marginal constituency it might
make a difference......
