These two species have brought together John Lemon of Painted Dog Conservation and Kevin Richardson to collaborate on an Australian speaking tour to help raise awareness of the plight of these two remarkable species. We chat with Kevin about the campaign against lion canned hunting imploring tourists to South Africa to be discerning when it comes to partaking in any 'lion conservation/tourism' as one may well be stroking the hands of a thoroughly cruel & sinister industry. We also chat with John about his inspiring projects that all stem from his mandate to help protect and save painted dogs.
A recent paper written by Leah Gibbs, Jennifer Atchison & Ingereth Macfarlane & published in Geoforum raises many questions about the place of camels in Australia. When do we accept that a species belongs here? What does the story of the camel have to tell us about our cultural development when it comes to ethnicity? While some view camels as ferals to eradicate others are building up their camel herds to eat unwanted weeds.Tune in Sunday as we chat with Leah Gibbs.
