Another three articles from the mainstream media about "what went right" rather than "what went wrong".

Summer rains awaken dormant Western Australian desert turtles by Nathan Morris (ABC Goldfields, Western Australia)

With the recent rainfalls, normally unseen forms of desert life have come out of a period of dormancy, to feed, breed, and stock up for the next long dry. This includes things like the flat-shelled long-necked turtle, and various forms of burrowing frogs.

How to avoid getting into trouble when collecting for charity by Emma wynne (ABC Radio Perth, Western Australia)

More of a "how to do it right" than a "what went right", but this one is a brief profile of how to avoid problems when fund-raising for charity. Be aware the information given may be very specific to Western Australia - but the overall point of the article is probably pretty universal.

Goat meat price breaks records in Western Australia by Joanna Prendergast and Lucinda Jose (ABC Rural, Western Australia)

Goat meat is currently fetching $6.2 per kilogram, an unbelievable price for an animal pastoralists formerly regarded as a pest, barely worth the bother of killing. The price is actually higher than the price being offered for sheep meat.

So there's my three stories for the day. If you've found any stories in your mainstream media feeds about "what went right", why not share a link to them in the comments? I found a lot today, so I'll probably put in a comment with the rest of 'em a bit later.
