Bob Irwin on Australian environment, wildlife, government, business
Lifelong wildlife campaigner Bob Irwin, father of the late Steve Irwin Crocodile Hunter, talks about the situation with Australian wildlife as he sees it. He worries about the push for a big Australia, about the pressure on our environment if the population increases too much. Bob says that all levels of Australian government do not take our environment seriously enough, but that we can't expect government to fix everything. He urges conservationists and corporations to work together to address the issues. Bob is not against mining or development, but he says we have to do it better.
