Remember when I was hating on folks for the idea of damming the Mary River, home of Australian lungfish, the Mary River Turtle and Mary River cod? Almost certainly not, but as a result of that entry I joined the SAVE THE MARY RIVER!!!! group, whose e-mails have kept me abreast of the situation. As of yesterday, I am pleased to announce that it looks like the Mary River is safe from damming! Australian conservationists are a-twitter (probably literally); I need to check Australian news sources for more info. Look at these guys:

Mary River Turtle, sporting awesome headgear.
Perhaps the second-largest specimen of Mary River cod?
