WHAT A BEASTLY STATE OF DE­CLINE

Sunday Tasmanian - - News | Letters -

UN­FOR­TU­NATELY for many of Tas­ma­nia’s beau­ti­ful na­tive species, the de­pic­tion of dire cir­cum­stances does not make for pleas­ant Sun­day night view­ing.

Huge de­clines in wom­bat, Tas­ma­nian devil and spot­ted quoll pop­u­la­tions are un­pleas­ant but nec­es­sary con­ver­sa­tion points.

It would be a shame if David At­ten­bor­ough’s Tas­ma­nia be­came the only way fu­ture gen­er­a­tions were able to view such pre­cious species. Ben Rush­ton Ta­roona
