Sydney University is studying Lyme Disease in Australia. They need tick samples as well as people who have suspected Lyme Disease to take part in the study.

If you find a live tick, it needs to be frozen and sent by overnight mail to Sydney University. Go to file:///C:/Users/Mum/Documents/NAC%20web/UoSTickCollectionAdvice_2014.pdf for collection advice.

If you have been recently diagnosed with Lyme Disease or suspect you may have Lyme Disease, the University needs you. You would be required to provide blood samples over a 6 month period and to fill out a questionaire. Go to http://www.lymeaustralia.com/sydney-uni-study.html for...

I was, with sorrow, quite prepared to accept that there were no more Cove koalas. That was until this past week.

This is why the ‘loss of hollow-bearing trees’ has been listed as a key threatening process to biodiversity in New South Wales.

Farms and agricultural areas are often characterised by large, old,...
