Interview with David Tree about Sam the Koala

As I said in the last post, I heard David Tree interviewed on the Neil Mitchell program on radio station 3AW here in Melbourne yesterday, and I was hoping they would post it on their website.   For those who are interested in hearing the story you can listen to the audio here.

Once again 3AW have done a fantastic job covering the fires. On Saturday as we were sitting at home listening to the sirens from the firetrucks and the helicopters flying overhead as a fire started half a kilometer south of where we live, it was 3AW that was providing the regular updates that gave me the confidence to stay at home.

Please leave a comment if you read this – there is amazing interest in this story from around the world and even this blog is getting hits from all over the place – so if you drop in let me know where you are from.

More than 180 people were killed in the weekend’s fires, and on Wednesday, the scope of the devastation to Australia’s wildlife began to emerge, with officials estimating that millions of animals also perished in the inferno.
