I'm going to miss this face. Two months after he lost his mother to a snake bit, baby Impala "Sydney" is just a few weeks away from being weaned off milk and returning to the wildlife reserve he was born in.
He's grown so fast, has begun eating grass and is quickly becoming the independent impala he needs to be. Good luck little man...

Meet Sar and Olivia, who got engaged on 25th February. (Congratulations!) Here is an excerpt of Olivia's speech at their engagement party...
"Marriage in our country is the union of a man and a woman to the exclusion of all others, voluntarily entered into for life. We are all well versed in what constitutes marriage in our country and I can be pretty sure that all of us here unequivocally agree that this is an outdated construct.
While we continue to fight for change, Sar and I choose to feel only gratitude. Gratitude for our family and friends who fight with us. Gratitude for this really being the only thing in our abundant and privileged lives that we cannot have. Gratitude for having found each other and being able to commit our lives to each other – even if by law it is unofficial. By soul, it is completely real and undoubtedly official.
So tonight, we are not really celebrating an engagement to a marriage that we cannot have but more importantly, we are here to celebrate a love, a bond, a respect and an admiration that cannot be broken.
Before I met Sar, I was searching. I was confused. I chased goal after goal. I kept busy. I was confused because societal norms taught me that love and relationships looked different to what intuitively felt right for me. A decade of wasted confusion. Finally, Sar came into my life and intuitively everything felt right. I felt love, peace and wholeness. I felt complete.
So while we continue to fight for marriage equality, we ask that all of us here continue to challenge ‘normal’. Because when there is no longer a norm, there is no longer a social standard and we can just be. Challenge normal in your words, beliefs, values and actions. Challenge normal for our youth. For your children. For our children.
Sar is perfect. She is intelligent, caring, calm, creative, talented, loyal, hard-working and absolutely stunning. Sar is one of those unique humans that people only adore. Sar is all I could wish for in a life partner – and so much more.
I love you Sar. You are my best friend. You (and our imaginary pet cow) mean the world to me and I cannot wait to see where this life takes us. Let’s continue to build this dream together.
Our wish for tonight is to share and celebrate our love and commitment with the people we love most. We ask that you all enjoy the rich tapestry of diversity that is our world. We ask that you enjoy the abundance of success, kindness and intelligence that fills this space. We ask that you enjoy the cheese and the raw, vegan, blow-your-face-off cake.
And now we ask that you raise your glass."

“I want you to know that is what it’s like to be at the bottom of the crap pile, through no fault of our own, for many of us,” Senator Jacqui Lambie told the Senate. “For you to take more money off those people, you have no idea how bloody tough it is for those people. What you are doing is shameful and if you really realised the damage you are continually doing to that part of society you would stop doing it.”
