GoSeers asked to help threatened species as TravelSmart prizes go to Qld, WA, NSW, SA, Vic and New Zealand

This month one of our generous TravelSmart prize sponsors Peel Zoo, Western Australia, asks GoSeers to help South Australia's Southern Hairy Nosed Wombats which, although listed as a threatened species, are being killed in South Australia. Culling is still legal.

The Wombat Awareness Organization is now planning to put together Wildlife Watch a community group of volunteers working together to catch wildlife cullers. Help is needed click www.wombatawareness.comto check what can be done to save wombats like Bean Bag.

A Wombat Awareness Organisation source said today that rescuers had reports from the local Murray lands, South Australia community -about the amount of city folk killing
wildlife on the weekends. The community wants to band together to put a stop to all of the wildlife culling, the WAO source said.

Free GoSee TravelSmart membership has many practical benefits. Now a new touring aid has been added. It is a spread-sheet fuel calculator.

The spread-sheet is linked to the popular GoSee Fuel Calculator (just click TravelSmart Good Stuff option on the left of the Home Page).

It is designed to give TravelSmart Club members the ability to use the speadsheet over 10 fills. GoSee believes this gives a better range for a running average of fuel performance.

With a 10 fill spread calculation headwinds, hills, road surface, hot weather, different drivers and varied loads and weights are better covered in producing an actual average outcome.

Free membership of GoSee TravelSmart Club extends the key benefits which clicked the idea of free touring websites to assist travellers in Australia and New Zealand and the caravanning industry into action five years ago.

As a registered member of the GoSee TravelSmart Club members have access to additional features they include information and prizes.

Editors Note: The GoSee TravelSmart prizes are not redeemable during peak periods and accommodation is subject to availability. To be eligible for the monthly draws new TravelSmart members must supply their full contact details.
