Last month I wrote a post about Howie Ralph a fellow I met at teacher's college, who is now a medical doctor and a veterinarian. He was in the news for volunteering his services to save animals burnt in the bush fires. Now he is in the news again.
Dr Howard Ralph has been nominated for a 2009 Pride of Australia medal in recognition of his devotion to saving native wildlife.
Another friend ,Keith, has more information about Dr Ralph on his blog "PNG Attitude"
