Urgent help needed for the Canberra kangaroos

The Australian Society for Kangaroos has been in court this week trying to stop a cull of kangaroos indigenous to the area.These culls have been almost annual, based on the ACT Government line that they are in 'plague' proportions. The real problem is that the area is the seat of Federal Government with head offices for public sector agencies, and the ACT Government relies heavily on the revenue it receives from the continual turnover in housing and the explosion of building has encroached upon…See More

Apes bred for medical experiments in Victoria

This was the headline article in the Sunday Age today, one of our major newspapers.  While I am pleased to see it given such prominence it is nevertheless distressing to read what we all probably know or suspect, that 'ethics committees' and a bit of a joke.

Having a wistful moment

Posted on November 18, 2012 at 15:38 0 Comments

One of my favourite poems by DH Lawrence.  I was reminded of this today when a young woman in a shop squashed a spider on the counter just as I said 'DON'T" and before I could stop her. I said 'why did you do that?' and she asked what I'd have done with it and I said 'put it outside.'  But I recalled being afraid of spiders as a child, my mother telling me I was afraid of them,  and how long it took me to treat them respectfully.
