Vol 3 No 3 OUT NOW!
At Wildlife Secrets we can’t quite believe that 2013 is drawing to a close. We have now been in publication for 21⁄2 years! It’s been such a joyous ride but we couldn’t have done this without our wonderful photographers, editorial staff, sponsors and advertisers and, of course, our loyal readers. As a holiday season gift to you, we have a fabulous subscription offer to help ring in the New Year.
If you subscribe to Australian Wildlife Secrets by 31 January 2014,
you’ll pay only $49.95 instead of the usual $55—plus you’ll receive a bonus magazine, free! Hurry to our website at www.wildlifesecrets.com.au to take advantage of this limited-time offer.
This issue is jam-packed with interesting articles, including one about our cover star, the echidna. It is a unique creature with a refined grace and
a dignified propriety, as Dr Peggy Rismiller explains. The winner of the EarthWatch Expedition Competition, Tony Egan, tells us about his amazing time with the team in north Queensland’s tropical rainforests. Lisa Nunn introduces us to the amazing Fogg Dam Conservation Reserve, a wetland haven for wildlife, particularly waterbirds.
As Peter Ward discovered, nature can throw up some truly astonishing relationships and this wildlife friendship will intrigue and delight you! Our resident vet Dr Tristan Rich provides extraordinary insight into the range of available treatments for damaged turtle shells. Felicity Wishart explains why the Great Barrier Reef is under threat from something quite avoidable, and how one of our best-known wildlife warriors, Bob Irwin, has joined forces with the Australian Marine Conservation Society in what is shaping up to be a monumental fight for the reef.
These are just some of the many superb articles in this issue. We hope you enjoy them as much as we have enjoyed preparing them for you. We wish you, your families and your friends a safe, happy and relaxing summer and look forward to bringing you more inspiring, captivating and informative issues of Wildlife Secrets in 2014.
