Hello dear readers —
We’ve finally brought our publications system (mostly) in-house, onto our own server. We’ve been hard at work changing our email software so…things may look a little different in this email. The ideas is a more streamlined sending system, with much less copying and pasting… and therefore more of the good stuff sent out more often!
Now, onto the issue. We’ve got two excellent videos for you, a set of beautiful drawings, and a practical guide.
The practical guide comes from Mammalwatching.com, where they are hard at work bringing the spotting and recording of mammal observations up to the same standard of recognition as birdwatching. It’s a good lens to understand the world with, and in this one we’re pleased to share a very concise trip report written for the visiting mammal spotter.
The Stoked for Saturday team delights us with their drone footage of a climb of Cradle Mountain, taken in the days before aerial filming required permits. It’s pretty amazing to see the shape of the mountain from the sky – it reminds me just how surreal and strange the dolerite pillars really are.
Next, a Tasmanian Archives film brings us on a pleasant journey through Hobart of yesteryear – when electric trams and cargo boats in town were still a thing and before that little thing we call the Internet. It’s a good watch — and surprisingly recognisable as the same city sixty years later.
Finally, Paula over at Paperbark Writer on the mainland shares the first of two beautiful cartoon sets recalling the fires that burnt a famous section of the Queensland World Heritage rainforests. Her poignant pictures remind us of the vigilance required for the bushfires seasons, and in the next issue we’ll show her followup series of resprout and regeneration vignettes.
I hope you enjoy reading these as much as I enjoyed gathering them!
All the best,
