📰 4ZZZ NEWS | Current Research in Koala Chlamydia Vaccines 📰

Many of us Queenslanders are lucky to have koalas living amongst us.

To keep our koalas thriving and safe…

We take precautions driving slow in ʻkoala-signedʻ road areas, keeping our dogs and koalas apart and protecting mature 40-year old plus trees which koalas call home.  

Many of us are also aware that our koala populations are suffering from general diseases like chlamydia.

What are the implications for them and what is being done to battle koala chlamydia?

4ZZZ's Eliot Rifkin and Toni Pankaluic chatted about current research in koala chlamydia vaccines with Kenneth Beagley a Professor of Immunology from QUTʻs School of Immunology

For a deep dive...

❓ Zed Trivia | Beyond The Dark Horizon❓

Beyond The Dark Horizon is a publication of green anarchist art, poetry, stories, rants from 'so called-Australia.' This is something that I think 4ZZZ listeners and community members would love to check out.  

They have some digital copies that you can access from their website here. Donations are welcome to help them run some events in the future.

"We are in a new epoch of breakdown. what will it mean to not have a horizon ... to have no map of how to act ... to have only shifting sands to cling to and be in a world radically different than that of the last 10000+ years? What does green anarchy mean today."

If you’d like some more Zed Trivia why don’t you listen to the 4ZZZ Podcast - From A to Triple Z

That's all for this week, be sure to check your inbox next week for the next instalment of Zedletter!
