when you’re experiencing homelessness those reasons are no different.”

It’s estimated 142 for every 10,000 Tasmanians have no home. There’s a lot of homelessness that doesn’t get seen,” he said.”It’s not uncommon for us to hear stories of people sleeping with their families in a car.”It’s not getting better, it’s getting worse.”Mr McCrae said it was also not uncommon for people to choose to be homeless and sleep rough rather than give up their pet.”When they’re faced with going into accommodation or staying with their pet, it’s a no brainer,” he said.”People have pets for a number of different reasons … I will cross a road to pat a dog.”Details on how to help can be found on the A Paw Up Facebook page. It’s not just people who are affected by homelessness — their pets are often left hungry and out in the cold too.When Deb Conley met a man and his dog going hungry in New Town, she offered to help them by buying some pet food.”That got me thinking that if he was in that sort of need and his pet was [too], there would be others,” she told Helen Shield on ABC Radio Hobart.”In most other states in Australia there are organisations or groups helping pets of homeless people or those facing homelessness but I couldn’t find anything in Tasmania.”

Ms Conley said her big vision for A Paw Up was to eventually be able to provide free and discounted vet care for pets of the homeless, as well as provide affordable pet boarding.”A lot of people that we’re dealing with and trying to help won’t receive treatment for illness because they have nowhere to take their pet.”I would provide shelter and boarding for these pets if I could.”I’m a crazy dog lady. (ABC Radio Hobart: Carol Rääbus)
Ms Conley decided to help as many pets in need as she could by starting A Paw Up.The group collects donations of food, blankets, toys, collars and leads to be distributed through the Salvation Army Supported Housing (SASH) network across the state.”The first bulk of food that I took to the Salvos has gone to Devonport and Launceston, and the latest lot will stay down here in Hobart,” Ms Conley said.”It is predominately dogs, but some of SASH’s clients have cats as well.”Don McCrae, a team leader with SASH, said A Paw Up was helping them meet a need that had not been a priority previously.”Anybody who wants to come and help in this sector we welcome them with open arms,” he said.

Homelessness getting worse in TasmaniaMr McCrae said he had seen an increase in demand for support in Tasmania, with more families being forced to live in cars or unsecure accommodation.”People probably walk past each day and probably don’t notice it.

Round-the-clock library in Tullamore boosts reading

Internet and access like that isn’t always up to scratch,” Ms Alvey said.If all else fails, there is the old pen and paper to write down borrowings and returns in a book.New freedom for TullamorePam Mortimer is one of Tullamore library’s most regular users and despite some initial hesitation about using the key entry and self-check in, she is very happy.”I’m a reader so it’s very important to me.

Keen reader, Pam Mortimer, with library assistant, Melissa Alvey, at the 24-hour library at Tullamore in central NSW. She said the library was appealing to many people of different demographics and her grandchildren like the DVDs.For library users like Ms Mortimer — a keen reader of crime fiction — it has been a wonderful change.”It’s a real new freedom for Tullamore,” she said. (ABC Central West: Melanie Pearce)
Security and technologyThe 24-hour library was established after the installation of security cameras to ensure that those using the service were doing the right thing.However Ms Alvey said being a small town, the system, based largely on honesty, works well.The borrowing is done via an internet connection, which has some associated problems for a country town like Tullamore.”We have had a few teething issues with technology out here. Avid reader, Pam Mortimer, who lives on a rural property in central-west New South Wales, has something at her fingertips many bibliophiles could only dream of.She is a member of the Tullamore town library, giving her round-the-clock access to books, audiobooks, DVDs and magazines.”It’s the most exciting thing that’s happened to Tullamore,” Ms Mortimer said.The experiment of a 24-hour library in this town of around 200 people is believed to be the first of its kind in Australia and is already reaping reading rewards.Why the need for a 24-hour libraryPrior to the introduction of a 24/7 access system last September, Tullamore’s library was only open for about four and a half hours on a Wednesday.Librarian, Melissa Alvey said the shorter hours were frustrating for many locals.”A lot of our members are out of town and they don’t want to do an extra 30 kilometres to come into town just to visit the library,” she said.”It is really hard; you want people to still be encouraged to read but the distance is a bit of a hindrance.”So the Parkes Shire Council introduced a system that enabled the library to be open round the clock.How it worksAccess to Tullamore’s library works through a key system to approved members who can unlock the building then use the computer to scan their items to return or borrow them.It’s a small, one-room building, containing about 2,700 items but these are regularly refreshed with new titles from the network of libraries within the Parkes Shire.Library members can also order items and Ms Alvey has them waiting to pick up at the building at a time that is convenient to them.”They’re getting their books quicker and probably a higher number of books they’re able to read as well,” Ms Alvey said.Membership up, reading revivedIn the eight months since the 24-hour library was launched, 33 people have been issued with keys to the Tullamore library, about a quarter of them new members.The Parkes Shire Council’s figures show that, compared to the last financial year, borrowing is up 80 per cent.Ms Alvey said use of the library outside of the normal Wednesday opening hours now accounts for about 50 per cent of the library’s use.The State Library of NSW has visited Tullamore to view the round-the-clock library and Ms Alvey said she hoped other small town libraries would also consider adopting it. A book is like an outing,” Ms Mortimer said.

“It’s the same application as being on land but you have a big pile of water over your head.”Experiences that stay long after the camera is off Crantich said it was actually a recent trip that had had a big impact on him.”We went to Raine Island which is the biggest green turtle rookery in the world.

“There’s an extensive recovery program happening up there with Queensland National Parks where they are trying to keep the hatchling numbers up as there’s been a decline there.”That location was just wonderful, and the great man David Attenborough rates it as one of his top five locations in the world.”Cranitch said he had to remember to concentrate being in so many awe-inspiring locations. (Supplied: Queensland Museum Gary Cranitch)
“You stop to look behind you, as well as in front of you, as I’m always seeing things as a photographer.”I call it my little voice which tells me to concentrate on what I have to do.”When you’re inundated by wildlife it’s an awesome experience.”Teaching people the importance of natureCranitch is exhibiting his latest works in the Whale Mall at the Queensland Museum.The exhibition, titled The Great Barrier Reef, shows a collection of images he took over a four-year period in which he logged more than 500 reef dives. Meet the man who travels across Queensland to photograph the wonders of the outback as well as the deep, dark depths of the Great Barrier Reef.Gary Cranitch has been the photographer at the Queensland Museum for more than 34 years.He has captured creatures great and small in locations that naturalist David Attenborough calls his “most highly rated natural wonders”.

He said most days he stopped and watched people looking at his work.”I wander past people and there will be a family looking at the pictures and reading the beautiful written captions of what’s in the picture.”To see the young children take that in and stop and consider what they’re looking at and learn about what they’re looking at …

Before walking, an Aboriginal health worker takes the blood pressure of the walkers to let them know how their general health is.As well as this, once a month a “good, quick tukka meal” is prepared together by the group.The walkers then take the recipe home and share it with family and friends. (ABC Radio Brisbane: Jessica Hinchliffe)
“We do that so they cook healthy at home and that message is then spread wider,” Mr Malone said Good views and connection to the sea helps walkersAlongside the health benefits, Mr Malone said it was good for walkers to connect with the ocean and land.”We have it here at Shorncliffe with the water, sea views and the breeze — we all love it here and it’s important for us to do this. Along the shore of Queensland’s Moreton Bay, a group of walkers young and old stride out each week — not only for health benefits but for friendship that spans generations.The Shorncliffe Shufflers meet every Monday morning at the local pier to walk by the calm waters of the bay 20 kilometres north of Brisbane.

“Each week many of them walk a bit further; the health benefits are great and they start socialising better,” Mr Malone said.”It’s about having food and having a yarn and sharing jokes.”Mal has walked with the group for more than 12 months.”I really enjoy the company and the friendship that we get from coming together,” he said.”I pitch in and help get the food ready too.”Moreton Bay suits me fine as we’re right on the water … Photo:

“Some people can’t walk very well but it’s good for them to come down and have a social outing for the week.”He said the difference in people’s attitudes after they had been walking a few times was great. The group comprises Indigenous and non-Indigenous walkers ranging in age from 21 to 71. Photo:

Run jointly by Heart Foundation Walking and the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island Community Health Service Northgate, the meetings help keep local residents active.”We walk from the pier to the swimming pool, but everyone walks their own pace and distance,” community liaison officer Joe Malone said.”We only meet once a week but once the walking has finished we talk about the week and what we’ve been up to.”We have young and old, Indigenous and non-Indigenous, and everyone gets on really well.”Good, quick tukka meal Mr Malone said the group was about “more than just walking”, with general health checks and healthy food offered as part of the weekly meet-up.

Ms Bowman says living on a military base provides her with an extra sense of security for her son’s safety. (ABC Radio Darwin: Mark Rigby)
“There’s a lot of women in the same position as myself, with partners often away, so the support networks are great.””The mothers’ group on base has been great because we all had babies around the same age and we all knew what each other was experiencing with having Defence partners and the challenges that go with that,” Ms Blignaut added.Don’t forget the flowers, gentsMs Bowman and Ms Blignaut said they would be standing in for each other’s partners today, heading out on a brunch date.But it almost did not happen that way.”Initially I didn’t know her husband was going to be away so I was going to go on a date with our son and pretend he was my husband,” Ms Bowman laughed.”I was just going to sit across the table from him and enjoy that moment because I gave birth to him and he’s the most special thing in our lives.”After their date, both women hope to return home to some kind of surprise from their respective husbands.When asked if their partners would still be in trouble if they forgot the flowers — even though they were on duty — the answers were clear.”Yes,” both women laughed. (ABC Radio Darwin: Mark Rigby)
Ms Bowman too counts herself lucky.”Gone are the days of sending letters that would take three months to get to partners over in the war,” she said.”Having that technology means he is able to watch our son grow up, sure it’s on his phone or his laptop, but it’s the best way of seeing what we’re up to and how he [Xavier] is growing.”Life on baseBoth women agreed a military base was a great place to raise children, especially young boys.”It’s got lots of trucks and boats and helicopters flying past and things to point out, and as Frankie’s getting older he’s recognising the sights and sounds,” Ms Blignaut said.And the age-old proverb “It takes a village to raise a child” could not be more true when it comes to parenting on a military base.”On this particular base there are all types of families from all three [Defence] services,” Ms Bowman said. As families around the country celebrate Mother’s Day today, spare a thought for the women whose partners are serving the nation away from the family home.Neighbours Hayley Bowman, 33, and Lauren Blignaut, 28, live on a military base in Darwin’s inner suburbs.”My husband has been away for almost seven months,” Ms Bowman said.”He left our son when he was almost four months and he’ll come home to a 10-and-a-half-month-old.”For Ms Blignaut and her 19-month-old son, the digital age has been a saving grace while her husband is away.”Thank goodness for technology because at least we can Skype or send photos and videos and stay in touch when there’s a lot of distance between you.”
