Plenty Gorge

Victoria has NO FAUNA Management FRAMEWORK

JUST IN! Conrad Annals, Acting Chief Ranger for Northern Melbourne district has advised that there is no kangaroo cull planned in Plenty Gorge next Monday and Wednesday nights, contradicting what published here on August 9. He could not comment on the lack of wildlife corridors to and from Plenty Gorge in the face of high human economic immigration numbers resulting in rapid population growth and infrastructure expansion in Melbourne and the rest of Australia. The growth lobby (of which the organisers and beneficiaries are mainly property developers) is both benefiting from and causing this unnecessary high human population growth. Department of Sustainability and Environment (DSE) protects and advances the costly interests of the growth lobby whilst pretending to protect our wildlife. The growth is unnecessary and so is culling. There is another way: Wildlife corridors and relocation as well as stopping high immigration.

Children in Epping tread where adults and politicians fear to go

What has happened to us that we have to get children to express our deepest values and concerns because we have been conditioned to repress them for political reasons?

Open letter to Gavin Jennings regarding the stranded kangaroos at Mill Park and South Morang

These animals are victims of planning failure, and our governments now are only interested in the economy! More than ever we have to recognise that we need green wedges, conservation corridors as buffers against further biodiversity losses and climate change.
