Dear all,

Just a quick note to advise of my article at the Australian Broadcasting Corporation's (the ABC) The Drum website on issues related to the recent irruption of the Princess Parrot Polyetis alexandrae at a site to the west of Alice Springs in central Australia.

I discuss some issues related to the inappropriate and unauthorised access to the land where the birds were found and the resolution - perhaps not to everyone's pleasure - of the issue by the land's traditional owners and a Commonwealth regulatory agency.

You can find the article here:

Please feel free to leave a comment or suggestion. I hope you find it a useful discussion of some very interesting ethical and legal issues.

Cheers and best for the season,

Bob Gosford
