Happy Good Friday to any Christians reading. Today, for them, is the commemoration of the creation of the new covenant between God and humans, born out of tragedy as the first one had been. For the rest of us, it's a public holiday and an excuse for a long weekend. Either way, have three items from my news feeds about what went right.

Perth Zoo Easter egg hunt: Crickets, meerkat bedding among the mouth-watering treats by Briana Shepherd (ABC Western Australia)

Animals at Perth Zoo continue to have seasonal enrichment activities - for easter, various animals will be getting treats inside paper mache eggs, to encourage them to forage for their food. A trial run was taken out among the zoo's meerkats, hyenas and sun bears earlier this week.

Embattled West Australian dairy farmers could make extra cash by breeding Wagyu beef by Tyne Logan

The head of the Australian Wagyu Association suggests that dairy farmers in WA who are having trouble getting milk supply contracts might want to consider breeding Wagyu/Freesian F1 cross cattle instead. These cattle fetch a high price at market.

Adelaide United players helping new arrivals from war-torn countries feel welcome by Sowaibah Hanifie (ABC South Australia)

A program run by the Uniting Church Wesley at Port Adelaide and Life Without Barriers is helping boys with their social, physical and mental wellbeing through playing soccer. Many of the boys are new arrivals to Australia from places like Afghanistan, Iran, Syria and various African nations.

So there's my three for the day. Enjoy your Easter weekend (where applicable), and if you find any links to stories about things going right, why not share them in the comments, and boost the signal?
