‘[Great whites are] protected in Australia & listed internationally as threatened species ... I don’t think there is any rationale ever to resume commercial fishing’ - Jessica Meeuwig, marine scientist. #abc730
So here’s the trick. In the day, close windows, draw curtains over glass, shut doors. When cooler at night open up house. Repeat as needed.
@abc730 @AntonyGreenABC Surely given the Abbott Turnbull Morrison fiasco - the Gillard govt is a shining light in hindsight..
@abc730 @abc730 “as needed” is the most slack medication practice in aged care . Overworked staff see “ as needed” as the quick fix to calm agitated elderly residents. #abc730.
Go Indy’ taking regional Australia for granted #auspol #abc730 @anyonebutnats @RobOakeshott1.
Could you imagine if this failed and instead we create Wasp Island. And island totally inhabited by asshole insects..
‘The big difference between our biocontrol agent and the cane toad is they’re really specific to the agent that we’re targeting. So they only target scale insects, they’re not toxic’ - Tanya Detto, crab expert. #abc730.
‘By introducing the wasp, we hope to parasitise and kill off some of the scale insects so they’re down at lower numbers, which should control the number of ants’- Tanya Detto, crab expert. #abc730.
‘The ants kill the crabs. First they blind them, they spray the acid in their eyes … then it gets into their gills, into their joints, making it hard for them to walk. Then eventually they just succumb to the sheer numbers’ - Tanya Detto, crab expert. #abc730.
‘Our best estimates were that there were about 80 million crabs back [in the 80s and 90s]. Our last estimates was from about four years ago when there were about 40 million crabs’ - Tanya Detto, crab expert. #abc730.
‘Something happened in the 80s or early 90s. People noticed that there were these massive super colonies of crazy ants, and that’s when they started noticing the declines in crabs as well’ - Tanya Detto, crab expert. #abc730.
Can an introduced species of wasp save Christmas Island’s famous red crabs? #abc730 @tomrjoyner.
THIS GUY NEEDS TO LEARN THAT HAVING A RELATIVE KILLED BY SOMETHING IS THE WORST REASON IN THE WORLD TO ENACT LEGISLATION OR FORM POLICY ON THE BASIS OF MY AUNTY WAS EATEN BY A SHARK FOR FUCKS SAKE ITS THEIR FUCKING OCEAN YOU GO IN IT ITS YOUR FUCKEN CHOICE #AUSPOL #PROTECTSHARKS.
This. There is no that killing great white #sharks reduce - WA Fisheries Minister @Davekellymp @abc730.
I’m sorry for his loss. But please let’s remember the more we continue to unsustainably fish and increase the ocean temp sharks will become more frequent ..
Please, can I have a sound reason as to how culling a population of around 8000 white #sharks is better for commercial fisheries?.
Great white #sharks can be pretty resilient to capture & it is only right that they have a fighting chance to survive. Like us, they mature in their late teens, live to around 70 yrs. One less great white is too many. #shark.
Bicycles have shared roads with cars for as long as cars have been on the road. Unless cyclists are being stupid or careless, there is no excuse for motorists to hit them. #abc730.
Since the late 1970s only one Australian woman has claimed a Grand Slam singles title and it’s been 40 years since a local woman took out the Australian Open. #abc730.
The odds are shortening then on a second #Brexit referendum, says @IanDunt, editor of #abc730.
‘The only certainty really, and it pretty much is obvious, that Theresa May is going to lose that vote tomorrow if indeed she holds it’ - @IanDunt, editor of #abc730 #Brexit.
Single use plastic bags have only been around for a few DECADES, humans apparently survived without it, we should be able to go BACK to NOT using plastics! #abc730.
This week the South Australian government revealed it’s considering banning single-use plastic like straws. #abc730.
Interviewing someone who makes a living out of filleting sharks for flake about whether White Pointers should be culled was not persuasive #abc730. 🙄 You can do much better than that #wapol.
Australians produce about million tonnes of plastic waste each year. Just 12% is recycled. The rest is sent to landfill. #abc730.
