I am a Wildlife Carer in Western Australia. I honestly believe the human race has a lot to answer for. We are destroying the habitat of many wildlife creatures. In the case of the Fairy Pitta, one has just spent several days in the backyard of a house in Derby, far north of W.A. If it wasn't for the likes of the Husham Dam this would not have happened. Please stop the development.

Thanks for the comment, lorikeet. You probably saw it but we have a post on the WA Fairy Pitta on the blog, Australia's first Fairy Pitta and a winter sighting on Borneo . An exciting garden visitor for sure, but too true, we are messing up a lot of habitat and making a huge mess of nature.
