In this week’s show, we talk with Dr Mel Taylor about protecting our animals in emergency situations and look at some new research that shows a plant-based food system would be much better for our environment.
We chat in the studio with Adam Cardilini, an ecologist at Deakin University. Adam tells us about his journey to becoming an animal rights activist, educator, and scientist. He also speaks about his animal advocacy training project that's been short-listed for a funding grant by Voiceless, his VeganSci initiative, and his recent attendance at the Institute for Critical Animal Studies (ICAS) Oceania conference in Canberra.
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 hidden 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. We share a rich mingling of living history with camels and just like us, they are here to stay - whether we like it or not.
Tune in as we chat with Dr Leah Gibbs.
