Various lockdown hacks and escapes — 63 — inspiring or interesting finds

With all that has been said and done lately about China and the weirdly named and maybe ill-begotten AUKUS (in reverse SUKU-A) this story, while featuring, has been less prominent than it deserves to be. Our ABC has been taking notice:

… a touching scene…
A great lesson for people who threaten their habitat and its kind…
When the photographer uploaded the photo, he wrote above:
