What Went Right - 8 FEB 2017
Once more, three articles from the mainstream media about "what went right" rather than what's going wrong.
Harvey bait factory churning out cane toad sausages to protect Kimberley wildlife by Matt Brann (ABC Rural, Western Australia)
In a bid to save native wildlife (especially predators) from cane toad poisoning, a special sausage containing cane toad meat has been created by a Harvey bait factory. The hope is native predators will eat the sausage, and wind up vomiting from the taste, causing aversion to the taste of cane toads in future. The sausages are planned to be used in a trial for the procedure on the Mitchell Plateau in March.
Homelessness in WA's South West brought into focus by Bunbury artist by Jacqueline Lynch (ABC Western Australia)
Bunbury photographer Kate Heaslip is running an exhibition of photographs of people who are sleeping rough in the Bunbury and Busselton area. The project is an effort at making these people visible again, rather than invisible.
(This is something which is "going right" because it's about making these people recognisable as humans, rather than socially invisible).
Australia's first school lawyer offers support to disadvantaged kids by Jeremy Story Carter (The Law Report, ABC Radio National)
Vincent Shin is employed by WestJustice, a community legal centre in western Melbourne, to work for four days a week at a P - 12 (i.e full school-age range) college in Hoppers Crossing. His role is in providing legal advice and advocacy for students of the school and their families, ranging from classes about their rights as commuters on public transport right the way up to representing them in court.
So there's the three for today. If you've found a story about "what went right" in your news feed, why not share a link in the comments?
