00Ψ00Ψ03,487 --> 00Ψ00Ψ07,807
HARRYΨ The ultimate aim of
conservation is balance -

2
00Ψ00Ψ07,807 --> 00Ψ00Ψ11,167
balance between
the resources man needs

3
00Ψ00Ψ11,167 --> 00Ψ00Ψ14,364
and a respect for all other
living things.

4
00Ψ00Ψ17,287 --> 00Ψ00Ψ21,127
Here on Barrow Island, we have some of
the world's rarest animals -

5
00Ψ00Ψ21,127 --> 00Ψ00Ψ25,120
at least two species are thought
to be extinct on the mainland.

6
00Ψ00Ψ26,127 --> 00Ψ00Ψ27,927
My job -

7
00Ψ00Ψ27,927 --> 00Ψ00Ψ30,367
to ensure that all these animals

8
00Ψ00Ψ30,367 --> 00Ψ00Ψ34,047
continue to live a balanced life

9
00Ψ00Ψ34,047 --> 00Ψ00Ψ37,756
without destruction
by man and his works.

00Ψ01Ψ09,727 --> 00Ψ01Ψ13,727
When Barrow became an oilfield
in 1966,

12
00Ψ01Ψ13,727 --> 00Ψ01Ψ16,167
it could have been
the end for the animals.

13
00Ψ01Ψ16,167 --> 00Ψ01Ψ19,637
This happens in so many
parts of the world.

14
00Ψ01Ψ23,047 --> 00Ψ01Ψ27,247
But here, 60km off the north-west coast
of Australia,

15
00Ψ01Ψ27,247 --> 00Ψ01Ψ29,327
on this desert island,

16
00Ψ01Ψ29,327 --> 00Ψ01Ψ31,045
the wildlife thrives.

17
00Ψ01Ψ36,127 --> 00Ψ01Ψ40,678
I've been a conservation adviser
for the company since 1964.

18
00Ψ01Ψ41,687 --> 00Ψ01Ψ44,607
At one stage, they asked me
to join the staff,

19
00Ψ01Ψ44,607 --> 00Ψ01Ψ48,967
but I'd rather work as a consultant
because that way,

20
00Ψ01Ψ48,967 --> 00Ψ01Ψ53,287
I don't have any conflict
between what the company wants

21
00Ψ01Ψ53,287 --> 00Ψ01Ψ55,926
and what I have to do
as a conservationist.

22
00Ψ02Ψ10,047 --> 00Ψ02Ψ12,197
This island is unique.

23
00Ψ02Ψ15,007 --> 00Ψ02Ψ20,047
It's developed over 6,000 years
in total isolation

24
00Ψ02Ψ20,047 --> 00Ψ02Ψ24,687
from Aborigines and introduced animals
and plants

25
00Ψ02Ψ24,687 --> 00Ψ02Ψ29,127
which totally changed
the mainland ecology

26
00Ψ02Ψ29,127 --> 00Ψ02Ψ31,243
and changed it for all time.

27
00Ψ02Ψ32,327 --> 00Ψ02Ψ34,807
There. Come on, come on.

28
00Ψ02Ψ34,807 --> 00Ψ02Ψ36,287
Come on.

29
00Ψ02Ψ36,287 --> 00Ψ02Ψ37,767
Come on, come on.

30
00Ψ02Ψ37,767 --> 00Ψ02Ψ39,246
I got ya.

31
00Ψ02Ψ40,527 --> 00Ψ02Ψ42,165
Come onΞ

32
00Ψ02Ψ43,527 --> 00Ψ02Ψ46,246
Now, now, now. It's alright.

33
00Ψ02Ψ48,487 --> 00Ψ02Ψ50,682
It's alright. Yes, yes, yes.

34
00Ψ02Ψ54,767 --> 00Ψ02Ψ57,247
Oh, this poor old fella...

35
00Ψ02Ψ57,247 --> 00Ψ03Ψ00,047
Boy, old and all, he's giving it
a good go for usΞ

36
00Ψ03Ψ00,047 --> 00Ψ03Ψ02,727
He's just about at
the end of his time.

37
00Ψ03Ψ02,727 --> 00Ψ03Ψ06,927
He's reached, in human standards,

38
00Ψ03Ψ06,927 --> 00Ψ03Ψ11,167
about 85, maybe 90.

39
00Ψ03Ψ11,167 --> 00Ψ03Ψ15,843
He's been displaced in his territory.

40
00Ψ03Ψ17,607 --> 00Ψ03Ψ19,207
He's been fighting.

41
00Ψ03Ψ19,207 --> 00Ψ03Ψ21,847
You see the scars.

44
00Ψ03Ψ28,807 --> 00Ψ03Ψ32,767
The absolute mark of
a battered old man

45
00Ψ03Ψ32,767 --> 00Ψ03Ψ34,758
is his chewed ears.

46
00Ψ03Ψ37,607 --> 00Ψ03Ψ39,087
In case you're wondering...

47
00Ψ03Ψ39,087 --> 00Ψ03Ψ41,327
(HISSES ANGRILY)

48
00Ψ03Ψ41,327 --> 00Ψ03Ψ46,767
...if, on Barrow Island, anybody
can walk out and catch a kangaroo,

49
00Ψ03Ψ46,767 --> 00Ψ03Ψ48,325
it's not that easyΞ

50
00Ψ03Ψ49,407 --> 00Ψ03Ψ54,687
As I say,
