Show support for Geelong’s Moolap salt works in Australia.

Posted Saturday 30th January 2016 at 15:21 by Rick and Elis
John Newman of the Geelong Field Naturalists Club has written to us asking for some support for a local community conservation project and it is something we can all get involved in, even those of us who live at the other side of the world. The problem may be local in one sense, but as part of the already struggling East-Asian Australasian Flyway, it is of international concern that such places are under threat. John rightly points out that we cannot keep badgering the Chinese and Koreans to protect...

A final (?) flick of the tail for Wader Conservation World Watch and a word about Joh

Posted Monday 14th December 2015 at 19:19 by Rick and Elis
I am reading the final chapters of a book by Isabella Tree about John Gould and rather feel that the idea of bringing people together around the world to one end is somewhat in the spirit of what he achieved. http://www.waderquest.org/2015/12/a-...for-wader.html

The poisoning of the Rio Doce, Brazil.

Posted Sunday 6th December 2015 at 14:31 by Rick and Elis
We are amazed and rather disappointed that this huge ecological disaster, probably the worst in Brazil's history, has not been given more media coverage outside Brazil except perhaps for articles about the financial cost to the companies involved, how much it will cost to put it right and who will pay what. There is much talk of billion dollar lawsuits where the lawyers will get rich and money will be paid over to a government which is under fire for alleged misappropriation of funds from many quarters....

16th of September is Plover Appreciation Day!

Posted Saturday 12th September 2015 at 11:18 by Rick and Elis
Plover Appreciation Day is a designed to raise awareness about the problems that these ground nesting birds face, especially at this time of year in the southern hemisphere where the breeding season is about to get under way. As these birds inhabit many places that are popular with humans for recreational purposes such as beaches, lake shores, wetlands and grasslands they often come into conflict and we all know who comes off second best in that particular competition don't we?
