    I thought you would be interested in this story I found on MSN:

    New planning regulations and mapping to protect Queensland koalas have been rushed, “bungled” and need to be

    Reviewed urgently, councils say.

    On Friday morning, Environment Minister Leeanne Enoch said the draft South East Queensland Koala Conservation

    Strategy was still being finalised but new mapping and regulations would come into force in the interim.

    Koala habitat areas within Koala Priority Areas will not be allowed to be cleared under the regulations,

    With some exemptions.

    a close up of a koala: New mapping will govern koala habitat in Queensland from today.

    Endangered gray wolf who walked more than 8,000

    miles through three US states to find a mate is

    Found dead as officials investigate whether she was

    Killed illegally

     

    OR-54 – a female dispersion wolf believed to be approximately 3 or 4 years old – was found in Shasta County, California, on Wednesday.

     No cause of death has been released from the state wildlife agency and state officials are investigating the case as gray wolves are protected by both the

    Federal Engendered Species Act and the California Endangered Species Act.

    Wildlife carers feed a wombat in their care

     https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7984801/The-measly-cash-wildlife-rescue-teams-received-Australians-donated-60m.html?ito=email_share_article-image-share 

    Second time I will place this story into this Thread, however, I will now put in WIRES contact number if you wish to speak with them.  It is rather upsetting to hear Australians donated $60m over the last few weeks and WIRES have only released $6.5m according to the Daily Mail. Some organizations have not seen a cent in the way of help.

    So the croc has had the tire around it’s neck since 2016? Poor guy.. The longer they wait, the harder it will be to get that tire off.
