Pamela McElwee said: "Policy officials can't always undertake the kind of work we did, so we hope our findings provide a useful shorthand for decision-makers," "We hope it helps them make the choices needed to improve future policy, such as strengthened pledges to tackle climate mitigation under the 2015 Paris Agreement. There are a lot of potential steps for reducing carbon emissions that aren't as well-known but should be on the table" External link

Jimmy Smith said: “With their experiences with Ebola and other emerging diseases, African countries are demonstrating the proactive ways to manage disease outbreaks,” “They are applying, for example, novel risk-based rather than rule-based approaches to disease control, which are best suited to resource-poor settings and they are joining up human, animal and environment expertise in proactive One Health initiatives” External link

Greg Toulmin says: “Land degradation in Malawi is a major challenge, arising from environmental, climatic and other pressures. Previous projects, supported by the World Bank and other partners, have demonstrated that it is possible to restore degraded landscapes through an integrated package of interventions involving land and water management,” “So, we see a long-term partnership between the World Bank and the Government of Malawi as crucial to these efforts at improving livelihoods and building rural resilience, especially in the context of Malawi’s recovery from the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic” External link

Cameron Kerr said (about Cameron Kerr): "We are hopeful we will see a high number of people through our gates these school holidays, especially with the arrival of our big cats”. The $32 million precinct also houses giraffes, zebras, meerkats and fennec foxes and is designed to teach visitors about the conservation challenges faced by these animals. Two viewing areas provide an opportunity to see the lions throughout the exhibit. The topography of the enclosure also provides Lwazi and Ato with a bird’s eye view of their neighbours, which may be nerve-wracking for zebras and giraffes that would be prey in the wild. Mr Kerr said the new lion habitat replicated the escarpments and rocky outcrops of the ‘kopje’ or high country. “Importantly, this habitat is also going to enable us to supplement crucial breeding programs to support insurance populations for this species,” he said. Mr Kerr said conflict between humans and animals was the leading cause of decline of African wildlife “and sadly lions are now extinct in 27 African countries”. The new precinct focuses on conservation efforts in Kenya where Mr Kerr said there had been “significant declines” in wildlife in the past 30 years because of land degradation, habitat loss, competition for resources and poaching. On a sunny winter’s morning, Lwazi and Ato seem content with lying in the sun, occasionally popping their heads up to admire the harbour views that are undoubtedly the envy of their Mosman neighbours. Ms Everett said the lions' diet consists of beef, chicken, kangaroo, deer as well as “bones and skin and feathers and everything" External link
