Government announces tough new restrictions - but no ban - for live sheep exports



2018-05-17T00:30:01+0000

BREAKING NEWS: Agriculture Minister David Littleproud announced the government will impose a reduction in the number of sheep packed onto vessels and increase the ventilation on ships in a push to alleviate heat stress during the northern summer months.

Fewer sheep will be packed onto ships and ventilation standards will be improved in an attempt to reduce deadly heat stress.

THIS LONG PERIOD OF LOVELY WEATHER IN MAY FIRST TIME IN 33 YEARS..

Break out the marshmallows – you can now have a campfire in selected national parks in South Australia. To check if the park you're visiting allows campfires, visit parks.sa.gov.au. #NationalParksSA ...

The worst thing about South Australia national parks is the $10 daly entry fee. Other states are free, that's why I don't camp in them any more, our taxes should be enough! SA is the anti-tourist state!

Will camp fires ever be allowed at Newland Head?

Already caught people stealing wood from the bush and using fire pits at Para Wirra campground and not even open yet. And that was during fire season. I think the previous government allowing campfires in a Conservation Park was and is a silly idea. Expecting people to bring their own wood in fully packed cars with kids?

Minimum impact leave not trace is one of the key stones of outdoor education. I am already cleaning up in Mt Remarkable National Park where people collect wood and create fire rings of stones. This is far from the concept of leave no trace and minimum impact

Surfleet cove (Lincoln national park) won’t allow fire , why ???

yeah thanks for that ... it's bloody raining and CCCcccold ! Who wants to go to a National Park in South Australia? I'm betting traffic in the parks this time of year is pretty sparse...

Cameron Bishop I feel a comfort fire coming on!!!!

I see a green light for "Deep Creek" :)

Hahaha thanks for tell us 😂

Kiara Sparks Might be something worth mentioning when you are making your damper over the fire in relation to not gathering firewood from the surrounding area.

Perfect time for camping Lizzie Pressley ⛺

If you're planning to visit Para Wirra Conservation Park this month, don't forget to stop by Devils Nose and check out a new ceramic art installation called 'Clay Impermanence' by Ang Walford Ceramics. #NationalParksSA #ParkoftheMonthA new ceramic art installation, 'Clay Impermanence' by artist Angela Walford can be viewed at the Devils Nose, Para Wirra Conservation Park 14-21st May 2018.
The artist explains "life has value precisely because it is transient and impermanent".."The work observes the patterns and shapes on the gum tree trunks and replicates those shapes by pouring slip in layers to create bark like pieces. The nature of the ceramics pieces being fragile and speaks to the very fragile nature of the park ecosystem."
