cockatoo story part 4 of 4

Finding only just enough room to meet in the remaining trees the cockatoos do as they have always done and exchange stories about the daily comings and goings in the region. But no longer are there stories to tell about the Djabuganydji, Buluwanjdji or Yirrganydi people winding their way through the djumburru (walking trails) in the rain forest. The stores now are of strange peoples who cut down trees and turn forest into asphalt—today’s cockatoo chatter is full of worry about where they will meet and what they will do once the remaining trees are gone.

(The end - for now)
