Many people are genuinely interested in the natural environment. Unfortunately the nature conservation movement has been invaded by people wanting to capture this interest to push an agenda that has nothing to do with the appreciation of natural history or conservation of wildlife.
The following letter from the Nature Conservation Council of NSW is a perfect example showing the lengths these people have gone to. In this instance it was met with a response by experienced amateur natural historian Andrew Chapman.
I’ve just witnessed something truly incredible. More than 5,000 kids from across NSW converged on Martin Place as part of a national school strike for climate action. Tens of thousands more are striking in cities and regional areas across Australia. I joined them in support in Sydney and to hear what they had to say.
