In a recent media release, Mark Coulton, federal member for Parkes, reported that the government intended releasing a carp- specific herpes virus in western NSW with a $15 million plan to rid our waterways of one of the country’s most damaging pests within30 years. 

“This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity based on cutting-edge biological controls and backed by the best available science,” Mr Coulton said.

Films that take your breath away

Film by Sascha Estens Moree - Rabbit Hop Films

Recently, I had the opportunity to work with one of the most amazing and positive women that I have ever met.  If you thought you were passionate about something this women just blows you away.   Each time I asked the questions and the answers came from those we were interviewing we new we had it.  The energy while doing interviews for a local film clip was amazing such a powerful experience that I would like to share with you a link to her website Rabbit Hop Films and share the films that she producers along with others in the team.   I hope you enjoy them as much as I did and I look forward to sharing the one she will produce for our community.
