Luckily for Jared and his family, Barry is here to save the day!

Koala Conservation

Dogs may not be the natural friends of koalas but on the Redlands coast they’re playing a key role in the conservation of this vulnerable species.

This southeast Queensland enclave boasts one of Australia’s most significant coastal koala habitats and this week Chris met researcher Dr Celine Frere to hear more about her Detection Dogs for Conservation program.

The dogs are trained to find scat, which can help researchers map their location, test for genetic diversity and track diseased or injured animals.

Habitat loss is one of the biggest threats to the koala population, but understanding their distribution can help improve conservation outcomes.

Mikey Robins

Amanda meets up with Mikey Robins for lunch and to chat about his new book ‘Seven Deadly Sins and One Very Naughty Fruit’. Mikey’s book explores the history of food via the seven deadly sins – Lust, Gluttony, Greed, Envy, Pride, Wrath and Sloth.
