Here in Victoria we can shoot ducks. Apparently the fee is $159.
If on the other hand you want to study ducks you will need ethics approval. The fee apparently will be $500.
This could be the end of some excellent volunteer projects.

We could be paying a lot more if Thiess Degremont are successful in their bid to sue the State Government for $1billion. Their case rests , in part, on the fact that wet weather interfered with their schedule!
