Rabbits have been a pest in Australia for over 100 years and are breeding fast.
How fast? The answer is very fast. 1 pair of rabbits can turn into 184 after just 1 month!!! They were first introduced to Australia by English game hunters who found them as good targets. But the problem is not enough were shot and they breed to quickly. Why is this bad you may ask. Well its bad because they eat native plants and carry rare diseases. So instead of shooting the rabbits they decided to infect them with a disease called Nyxamatopis. This disease only affects rabbits and wiped out the population by nearly 80%! But now they are coming back and breeding fast, so don’t see a rabit as a good thing when this cute animal is our worst feral animal.
Hope you liked the report!

By the way this isn’t my real report, OIL SPILL is. I would just like to say that designer babies should be banned! You should get what your given and like it!
Oil spills are a tragedy that affect humans and animals. They need to be stopped so we have to try to do what we can to prevent them.
Recently a large oil tanker carrying 141 barrels of chemicals and oil was spilt and had an oil leak. Out of those 141 barrels 31 were spilt covering 60 kms of coast line! Why is this so bad?, your probably thinking, well its because oil floats blocking out the air for fish causing them to drown, it can also poison birds who eat the fish and it ruins the birds feathers making them uncapable of flying. But the worst part is that oil is made from cruid oil. The government is doing waht it can to clean up this mess sending volenteers from alot of places to help. The company responsible for this was fined 1.5 million dollars, along with the 500 000 dollars to clean it up.
What i think should happen is that oil tankers and ships should only be able to transport oil when it is calm seas and not over windy stormy waves.

Rips, these natural disasters can be stopped, we just need to learn more about them.
Each year rips cause 50 deaths and over 15000 rescues. The deaths are not caused by the rips themselves its by the victims who struggle against the rip, loose all thier energy and can’t swim anymore causing them to drown. But if you are caught in a rip let it take you out then swim to the side. Rips move faster than our Olympic swimmers! The east way to know where a rip is, is to check where there are no waves and you’ve found your rip! Most swimmers think they have found the perfect spot where there are no waves then get sucked out, panik, and drown. Be careful because 17000 rips exist on aussie beaches at any time
I think all this could be prevented if people stayed between the flags and follewed the safety instructions!
Orangu-tangs, they are a calm gentle creature that are on the verge to extinction and need our help!
Despite their cuteness, 100s of millions of acres of thier homes are destroyed every year. Because the oils found inside the trees the orangu-tangs live in makes good profit. Most adult Orangu-tangs baby thier kids until thier 8 years old and thought to be self-independent and the average armspan for a adult Orangu-tang is 2 metres! Scientists say with thier hand-like feet they are one of our closest relatives.
My oppinion is that we should stop cutting down thier homes and replant the trees back with new ones. So if you leave a comment please leave your oppinion on my pole, do you think we should stop cutting down the forests or continue as we are going.

The recent tradegy, a 13 year old girl mauled by a shark while out surfing at a tazie beach.Her surfboard looked like a scene out of jaws.
The shark was a 5 metre long great white. As soon as her cousin sid realised he ran out to help her. Sid said that “she occasionally surfaced screaming before being dragged back under”. Sid rushed out punching the shark until it retaliated and swam away.They say it was just bad luck because on an average there are only 16 shark attacks per year, they were just in the wrong place at the wrong time. It was a preety nasty blow, recieving 200 stiches! She said that she doesnt want the sharks hurt.But the sharks dont like humans because they have a taste then swim away dissapointed.
I think its horrible, for the girl and for the sharks because every year 100 000 sharks die because of over fissing and “shark pan soup”! So hopefully sharks arent hunted so much that they dissapere off the earth.
