Weevil Warriors
Weevils are part of an arsenal being used to attack a smothering aquatic weed which is threatening the biodiversity and economy of Kakadu National Park.

Prison Cattle
A prison farm in Queensland has developed a reputation for producing highly sought after cattle. The cattle are fetching top prices at market, but the program is also changing lives by giving prisoners skills to help find a job on the outside. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander viewers are advised that this story contains images of people who have died.

Standing Tall
Depression and mental illness can affect anyone, but for those living in rural and remote areas, finding and accessing support services can make it even more challenging. One man from country Victoria has harnessed the power of nature to help him manage his illness, and has used his experience to help others. If this story raises any issues for you, contact Lifeline on 131 144 or Men's line on 1300 789 978.
