Editorial – Just another unjust moment in history

Justice has been served and it’s a shit sandwich: whistleblower David McBride is now the first person to be sentenced to jail in Australia for reporting war crimes.

These young long-nosed bandicoots were discovered on a local property beneath their dead mum and were luckily taken into care by Wildlife Information Rescue and Education Service (WIRES) recently.

There are many more young animals like this being taken into care as their parents are killed on the roads or by domestic animals.

WIRES says more volunteers are now needed. The organisation is holding a training weekend will be on February 18 and 19 at SCU in Lismore.
