It is of grave concern to me that the Native Title Act of 1993 still allows the hunting of endangered and vulnerable species within our country.
In June 2013, conservationists Greg Johnstone and Jess Mowat went to Namibia on a project that aims to alleviate human-elephant conflict with a desert-adapted population of African Elephant (Loxodonta Africana). This is their story… Our first camp was set in the farming district of Omaruru. After the EHRA volunteer group had set camp in what were dry, drought-ridden conditions (Aljazeera News: http://aje.me/19IkG1j), a heart-stopping
Bob has just returned from a trip to Cairns to discuss the Queensland government’s crocodile plan.
Still sorely missed.
Congratulations to the Coalition on the announcement of their well thought out policy to end the illegal hunting of turtles and dugongs under the guise of traditional hunting.
Brian Monk’s water bore in the heart of a developing gasfield has been the subject of much investigation. The LNG Enforcement Unit whose job it is to verify industry reports on gas leaks, claims there is no ignitable gas coming from the bore, but as can be clearly seen in these videos, the bore water is ignitable and the gas metres are measuring a
Brian Monk’s excellent illustration of QGC’s massive evaporation ponds at the Kenya Gasfield near Tara, QLD, and a frightening look at just how close they are to residents, who are now ill. Compelling viewing as this industry is spreading across Australia and will be affecting many people accordingly.
Brian Monk lives in a gasfield in QLD. He knows first hand what it means to live with coal seam gas. In this video his son David presents information on radioactive waste in CSG wastewater. Compelling viewing of the issues NOT mentioned by industry or Government.
Dr. Helen Redmond from Doctors for the Environment talks about CSG, impacts, and the ways it puts human health at risk. She talks about chemicals, coal seam gas components, air pollution and mental health in two separate presentations. Well worth watching.
Dr. Mariann Lloyd-Smith, Senior Advisor to the National Toxics Network and an expert on the toxic risks of coal seam gas mining to human and animal health, presents a detailed and devastating analysis of the poisonous effects of this destructive industry. Filmed at the Lismore Community Information evening concerning CSG mining in the Northern Rivers. April 2012.
Tara residents say coal seam gas is making them ill. The QLD Government and industry says its not. Drs. Isaac Santos and Damien Maher from Southern Cross University went to Tara, QLD and conducted extensive air testing to try and work out what the situation is. These are their excellent and informative presentations on methane, industry’s failings due to lack of prior study and
