After a long and hard fight for my wild cousins and myself I feel defeated/lost. It looks like my dream of a sustainable future and a federal protection with lots of yummy gumtrees has failed. I have to leave Canberra and go back to the bush. Being home among my friends and trees helps me best. I need a new plan and have to recharge my batteries after this two year long fight. I just don’t understand why my government doesn’t protect me when everyone around the world seems to love me?
