My sister and her partner live on Kangaroo Island, South Australia.  She sketched this idea, which I drew up, to show ‘the team’: the local farmers, neighbours and firefighters  who defended their bit of the Island for 10 days during the bushfires. They will each get a copy.

Hundreds of thousands of native fish dead: Menindee mass fish death. The Darling River, with no water flow and algal blooms, dies along with them.  Large cotton farm irrigators up river to blame? Wider mismanagement and corruption?  It’ll blow over once the smell has cleared … maybe …

Rapid appraisal of emerging issues in the oil palm sector in Palawan Island (The Philippines): Environment, livelihoods and corporate accountability, was a scoping report produced by a collaboration between Palawan State University and the Stockholm Environment Institute. It aimed  ‘to feed the ‘rich picture’ that emerges from the preliminary results back to people in Palawan’.

As part of the feeding back the results these three diagrams were developed to be used in presentations. There was a lot of ‘rich picture’ to juggle onto each page.

Cleanskin sheep are ideal easy-care meat sheep for new farmers.  A new website provides basic information about keeping these wool-less breeds of sheep. To visit Cleanskin Sheep Information click here.

In a world where, although it appears economical to jet Canadian pork around the world to Australia, for example, there is a growing movement for promoting – and celebrating – local produce; the sharing of this sort of information is valuable.

And it is about all food, not only meat, of course.

The website also gives an opportunity for cartoons to help highlight some of the issues – and give sheep a voice.
