Urgent moratorium on ALL AUSTRALIAN NATIVE ANIMAL KILLING needed (due to fires/floods)

There are far too many threats to our native animals' existence. The recent bushfires and floods have decimated wildlife in two states. It's time for our government to change its policy of giving licences to kill 'protected' wildlife and regarding them as 'renewable resources to harvest sustainably.' We call for a moratorium on the killing of ALL Australian native animals. Australia has the worst record in the world of wildlife extinctions. Time to change our attitude and our laws before we lose them all. Without biodiversity we will perish.

FOI reveals massive heavy metal contamination at former Defence site, Canberra

We were told that the 514 kangaroos at Belconnen Naval Transmission Station could not be relocated to other properties and had to be 'culled.' The reason given was that the kangaroos were a threat to certain endangered species - the Golden Sun Moth, Gininderra Peppergrass and Striped Legless Lizard.

The last thing kangaroos need is less protection. Already they are copping it from every direction. With populations crashing across the country, this is the last thing they need. Professor Archer, take your FATE program and bury it!

The real cause of Victoria's raging bush fires

While people blame greenies, global warming and arsonists for the fires devastating Victoria, there is a more obvious cause that for some reason, people don't want to admit - European farming techniques are turning our country into a desert ..... time to change our diets, or we can expect more fires until there is nothing left!

Kangaroo Meat: Why it's Not Good Bush Tucker!

If you don't think there is a health risk involved in kangaroo consumption (for yourself or your pets); think that the solution to livestock-caused greenhouse gases is eating kangaroo meat; haven't considered the reasons why in fact kangaroos could NEVER be farmed; still believe the myth that there are plagues of kangaroos out there that need to be 'culled'; and that it's a humane, well-regulated industry involving no suffering to kangaroos, you need to read this article.....
