A small 460gm pademelon or small wallaby named Tre, in a pouch and cared for by a volunteer wildlife rehabilitator in Kayena, Tasmania, Australia, 13 April 2018. She was found clinging onto her dead mother lying on the edge of a road after she was hit and killed by a car. The pademelon is unable to survive in the wild at this age but will be released back into the wild at about 2.5 kg weight. Killed and maimed native animals litter the roadsides of Australia's southern state of Tasmania. It records among the highest rates of roadkill in the world with between 377,000 and 1.5 million animals killed per year. Research indicates if drivers would slow down, and official speed limits lowered at dusk and dawn in high density wildlife areas, tens of thousands of native animals would be saved.

Young boys sit on a stand and watch rugby being played during a grassroots schools rugby training session in the Katlehong township south of Johannesburg, South Africa, 05 June 2018. The training session was organized by the VUKA Rugby initiative which is a sustainable rugby program developed by SARU and aimed at the evolvement and promotion of rugby in disadvantaged communities and areas where it is not being played. Sporting history was made on 09 June 2018 when South Africa's first black national rugby team captain, Siyi Kolisi, ran onto the field at the Ellis Park Stadium in Johannesburg to lead the now multi-racial 'Springbok' team against England. The national Springbok rugby team was for decades the preserve of white, mainly Afrikaner, sporting culture and as such was during the apartheid years a team that only included white players and coaches and became the very public face of racial segregation. After 127 years and 478 matches played by the national team with 60 white captains, Siyi Kolisi ran onto the field to change history forever. EPA-EFE/KIM LUDBROOK
