Australia Day 2015

Comments

Four Australians of the year have been named, one of whom is a conservationist. She is "Senior Australian of the Year" a 61 year old children's author, Jackie French. Her passion is wombats and she has written a book entitled "Diary of a wombat".
There are many other conservationists out there "at the coal face" and we know who they are. Naming them now would be fraught with peril because of those who would be accidentally left out. Maybe we need a "Hall of Honour" somewhere in cyberspace for these warriors working under such adverse conditions and many seemingly losing battles where human activities are continually expanding
