- Ray and Murray Chambers have dedicated the past six years of their lives to rescuing koalas for their organisation, the Sunshine Coast Koala Wildlife Rescue. The brothers’ 24 hour rescue service knows no boundaries, covering the entire South East Queensland area. Yet despite their efforts, the brothers feel they are fighting a losing battle with only 1 in 7 koalas they rescue making it back into the wild. Fair Comment contributor Sarah Wykes speaks with Ray Chambers about why Koalas hold such a special place for him, and rescuing the iconic Australian animal with his brother.
- The Federal government has come under fire due the standard of living conditions experienced by asylum seekers living in the offshore processing centres for asylum seekers found on the Pacific islands of Manus and Nauru. Human rights groups and other critics have condemned conditions as harsh, oppressive and unfit to house women and children. Fair Comment contributor Estelle Leacock speaks to Carl O'Connor from the Darwin Asylum Seekers Support and Advocacy Network about the conditions experienced by asylum seekers on the offshore processing centres, how it is affecting children and his opinion on the measures to bring the conditions to an acceptable level.
