Biodiversity for Australia Day

It’s Australia Day. The newspapers are full of articles about what it means to be Australian. Which is rather odd, because with more than 20 million of us, there are more than 20 million opinions about this. Sometimes I wonder, what is the point of the introspection?

But in the midst of theses articles, Michael Leunig has a beautiful piece in The Age about how the land and its biodiversity are truly defining features of Australia. And how a highly urbanised society can interact with this country. I’d encourage everyone, to read it.
