save the murray

Follow this link to the SA Murray Irrigators blog to see SAMI chairman Tim Whetstone’s comments about how to save the Murray River. An edited version of these comments appeared in today’s Advertiser and there is a link from the SAMI blog to that report.



There are reports this morning that Murray Valley encephalitis virus has been detected in birds in the Riverland.

Local ABC radio interviewed a spokesperson from the SA department of health this morning, and mentioned information on their website but the old DOH hasn’t made the information easy to find. I’ll keep looking but in the meantime here is the link to some federal government information on the virus.

Unfortunately, that info is all a bit clincial, so here is today’s report from┬áthe Advertiser as well.
