Africa has the Lion. Australia has the Dingo as our Apex Predator. Protector of Biodiversity. So very Sacred in indigenous cultures- 'Our Dingo' compelled Professor Deborah Bird Rose to title her book, "Dingo Makes us Human".
OUR DINGO is Protected yet vermin. Sacred yet cruelly baited. A pest trapped & shot. Tune in this Sunday as we chat with Christopher Johnson -part of the team who won a prestigious Eureka Prize for Environmental Research showing how important our Dingo is for our Environment.

ALL Australians need to TUNE in to hear how precious & important our "Vanishing Icon" - the Dingo - is before it's too late!

Breed Specific Legislation (BSL), as I have found out, is disturbingly none of these. We chat with:
We chat with the dedicated & inspiring wildlife carer Louise Bonomi & listen to Vegan Smythe's new tune, along with news & upcoming not-to-be-missed events.
Wildlife carers often work through the night and care for our precious and vitally important wildlife in order to release them back into their natural habitat - a habitat that is under extreme pressure from our human encroachment.
WILDLIFE AND WILDLIFE CARERS NEED OUR SUPPORT MORE THAN EVER!
After all, wildlife carers are taking responsibility for the rest of society.
What do wildlife carers gain? Many sleepless nights and they often foot the bill for much food and equipment... however, the rewards for seeing the animals released back into their environment is beyond heartfelt words.
Tune in & turn on the salt lamp as Freedom of Species chats with Rachael Morris, a Love Life coach who has wonderful & helpful 'IN'sights for all activists. Rachael’s inspiring interview is guaranteed to encourage us all to hug that feisty activist soul within ourselves (and be honest with it) a lot more.

Anne Brummer, Chief Executive of 'Save Me' discusses the controversial badger culls due to start in June.
