Corey Bradshaw said: “As our analysis shows, the large and ever-increasing costs of invasive species to Australia’s economy are substantial and also likely to be underestimated,” “We can reasonably assume that without better investment and coordinated interventions, including animal culls, Australia will continue to lose billions of dollars on invasive species over the coming decades” External link

Peter Cuneo said: “Here at the PlantBank, our focus is wild native seeds from across Australia, particularly species in New South Wales (NSW). Our main focus at the moment is the threatened species. Here is the main repository for NSW threatened species seed,” External link

Peter Cuneo said: “There is no doubt that we are continuing to lose forest cover worldwide. The loss of biodiversity is globally significant. In many cases, forest can be cleared before you even know what species are there,” “There are really unique animals in Australia, but they rely on the native plants and habitats to survive. So we really need to preserve those natural areas and national parks, have those well reserved areas and look after them” External link

Tim Low says: “You don’t want a situation where a company becomes reliant on a supply of feral animals,” “Once you kill [some of that] group of animals, the rest of them are sneakier, they’re harder to get, so it’s economically less appealing. You get a less of return on your efforts going after them” External link

Matthew Petty said: “I’ve seen palm trees that on one day look healthy with green fronds and a couple of days later, the whole tree bends over like a shepherd’s crook. The trunks look solid, but because of decomposition and fermentation, they’re turning into mush,” “I’m hearing reports of that all over Texas. San Antonio and Austin are both seeing it, and we’re seeing it in Houston, too. As the temperatures warm up, you’re going to see palms become a greater risk” External link

Bob Gordon said: “A single factor, like timber harvesting, cannot by itself give rise to fires of the devastating scale we saw in 2019/20, and suggesting this misleads the public by oversimplifying the complex task of forest and fire management. Right now, our forests need real and scientific solutions, not simplistic ones,” External link

Corey Bradshaw said: "That's not a surprise because they affect the agriculture industry mostly, and so there's a big economic incentive to assess how many are out there and report those costs," "All of those costs are borne by the farmers, which then pass on to consumers, and in taxpayer money through government investment" External link

Lots of fungi and lichens as well” External link

Julia Cameron said: “I think it's really important, especially now, to research and look into biodiversity within our forest ecosystems within our jurisdictions, because biodiversity has been on the decline, … especially the last 40 years,” “We're in a crisis of losing species so the more we can learn about biodiversity, the better it'll be for us as well as our environments” External link

James Gunn said (about Dot Man): “It does have this postmodern vibe,” “Each of these superheroes came from a different genre. Bloodsport is sort of a grim, dark thing and Polka-Dot Man is from some goofy old cartoon and Peacemaker’s from a dumb 70s TV show and Ratcatcher is from almost like a ‘Saw’ type of movie or something. And they’re all coming together. The actors were like that, too. They all have their own styles and different ways of going about it. And it really is my job as a director to make them all on the same page” External link

Flay and Grandson... and putting it on a grand stage,” “I love the idea that everybody has purpose and everybody has meaning, no matter how insignificant you feel” External link

A part of the plan is to also reshape it a little bit so it drains better. ‘There’s a creek that goes from up on the hill behind where the horseshoe pits are and it drains downhill into the basin.
