    I heard your interview on the ABC
    I’m from Woodanilling WA and am very interested in the Wedge Tail, and consistently moniter them on my farm and surrounds.

    As its harvest time for me, and my wife has just had major surgery due to cancer,
    I’m wondering if your film will be available for purchase after the viewing’s at Curtin as I’m unable,to get to Perth for the viewing.

    Yours Sincerely
    Ian Garstone

    Hi Simon

    What you are doing is amazing. Will you be there on Friday night to talk about your movie?

    I was also wondering whether part of the entry fee goes towards your research. It would be great if it did 🙂 I love wedgies and have been hoping they get better protection in Australia. They are still being persecuted in farming and pastoral areas. Road kills are also a major issue in the outback.

    What you are doing will certainly help to raise awareness about this beautiful bird.

    Have you decided if there will be door sales on Friday the 12th yet?
