Australian Story- Our wildlife needs more funding!
Australia is a very prosperous country. Many Australians are making vast amounts of money from the mining industry, forestry, housing and investments. Money should be put towards our iconic wildlife, the same wildlife that brings in billions of tourist dollars every year. They are also integral to our biodiversity and the health of the land and our people.
They are being betrayed, not funded, burnt alive, have their habitat and homes cleared, they are culled and killed on the roads and gobbled up by feral and domestic non-native animals.
They deserve better, they don’t need a lot of money, but the impacts that they endure because of us humans should be compensated in some way to mitigate their suffering.
This wonderful Australian Story illustrates the need for all Australians to step up and make change.
