When balloons fly, seabirds die. In 2016 the CSIRO named balloons as one of the top three most harmful pollutants to wildlife, especially seabirds like the Flesh-footed Shearwater. Zoos Victoria together with phillip island nature parks have launched a campaign to help - #bubblesnotballoons - but we need your help, too. Promise to blow bubbles not balloons at your next outdoor event. Go to www.zoo.org.au/balloons to make your pledge. Our precious wildlife thanks you.
Welcome to The RED HEART Campaign's memorial to women and children who have lost their lives to violence in Australia. We have chosen to give no start or end date for this ongoing collection of photographs. This gallery exists to honour and remember those who deserved to live long and happy lives full of peace, love and laughter, but were never given the chance. We have chosen Banksy's Girl With A Balloon to commemorate those women and children for whom we do not have photographs or cannot picture for cultural reasons. If you have photos and/or the details of women or children lost to domestic violence, family violence, sexual violence or any other form of violence to add to this memorial, please PM The RED HEART Campaign Facebook page. While The RED HEART Campaign's founder Sherele Moody is responsible for the research that makes this project possible, we also acknowledge the efforts of Destroy the Joint's Counting Dead Women Australia project.

WILD WATERS Incredible footage is emerging from the Ravensthorpe area, with the Phillips River at the Thomas' farm 'Fairbreeze' a raging torrent - the same river that washed away an entire bridge on South Coast Highway. DFES had to arrange a helicopter to rescue 15 people stranded in their cars by the floodwaters. Full details in 9 News tonight at 6pm.

We are very excited to announce that as of tomorrow you will have the chance to visit Werribee Open Range Zoo's four lion cubs!
Born on 13 December 2016 to mum Nairibi and dad Johari, the four cubs are starting to venture out on public display with mum for short periods during the day.
Like all babies, the cubs will need their rest and Keepers have asked for visitors’ patience as they move into the dens to rest and feed.
At this stage staff expect that there will a morning viewing each day, but times may vary due to the cubs’ need to rest and to spend time in the dens getting to know the rest of the pride. As the cubs continue to grow, these viewing times will be extended.
For the latest info and viewing times, please visit zoo.org.au/lioncubs
