The visual Oz Quizz – Answers

Why are Burger King restaurants called Hungry Jack’s in Australia?
When Burger King moved to expand its operations into Australia, it found that its business name was already trademarked by a takeaway food shop in Adelaide. As a result, Burger King provided the Australian franchisee, Jack Crowin, with a list of possible alternative names derived from pre-existing trademarks already registered by Burger King and its then corporate parent Pillsbury that could be used to name the Australian restaurants. Cowin selected the “Hungry Jack” brand name, one of Pillsbury’s US pancake mixture products, and slightly changed the name to a possessive form by adding an apostrophe and “s” to form the new name “Hungry Jack’s”.

Kangaroos and their smaller kin, wallabies, are famed for their tendency to leap into the path of highway traffic, endangering not only their own lives but those behind the wheel.
A study from the University of New South Wales, in Sydney, has found the giant marsupials account for 60% of fatalities and 40% of injuries in accidents involving animals in NSW.
There were 13 human deaths in almost 2,100 crashes involving kangaroos between 1996 and 2005, with a person treated for injury from such a crash once every three days.

Question Two – Recording from CairnsBats in cairns

Currently, Cairns Regional Council and the Novotel Cairns Oasis Resort are planning to disperse a colony of spectacled flying-foxes from the Cairns. Of course, environmental associations flight against this decision : “The colony does not pose a significant risk to the community, and we believe it should be left where it is. Flying-foxes are important pollinators and seed dispersers, and help to keep the rainforest healthy. In addition, the colony attracts many tourists who come to see the flying-foxes roosting during the day and flying out at night.”
Well, in my opinion, it is terribly noisy and pretty scary…
