wildlife



Okay, I'm rubbish at taking photos. I average about one a month when in reality there's thousands of things I could be taking great photos of. But here's a couple of wildlife pics. First one is 'urban' wildlife, my neighbour who is looking after a wallaby that was rescued after its mum become roadkill... so cute! The second one is a big momma Praying Mantis sitting happily on the pandanus i planted at the language centre two and a half years ago (planted from seeds, i might add... I'm very proud of my pandanus).

running roughshod over Traditional Owners

Borroloola is a town/community south-east of Ngukurr and the two places have strong ties.

The NT Govt is running roughshod over the locals and Traditional Owners who are trying to legally stop a mine expansion and the diversion of their river(!).

It's absolutely shameful.

My gagu has been writing about it on his blog. Click on the link to 'matjjin-nehen' there on the right please.

If there was something more I could suggest you do, I'd ask you to do it, but I don't know what we can do!

Very sad indeed.
