Hamish goes on to talk about all the amazing emergency workers and volunteers who have stepped up and who have been there for all of us over the past few months.
“We talk about the men and women who choose jobs to protect us. The fireys, emergency services, volunteers, and the ADF. We talk about the fact they didn’t have a Christmas holiday and instead put themselves in the way of danger to help. Even though it was scary. That they are true heroes for that.
With millions of hectares of land lost and more than a billion animals, Hamish tells Sonny about our land and our wildlife and the role we need to play in protecting it and them.
“We talk about how special nature is. How it’s our responsibility to protect it because humans and animals need the planet at a very, very specific temperature to live on (here I use the analogy about how mum needs the bedroom at a very specific temperature to be happy).
“I’m sure these conversations are happening all over, and while the circumstances for having them are tragic, the outcomes of the conversations with our kids is a source of hope, I think. Hope for a tomorrow shaped by them built on awareness, kindness and care.”
