Governments taking the 'conservation' out of conservation management

In Victoria in 1992 some bureaucrat got the idea of changing the name (and focus) of the Department of Conservation and Environment to a Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, then in 1996 to a Department of Natural Resources and Environment, then in 2003 a split to (1) a Victorian Department of Primary Industries and (2) a Department of Sustainability and Environment.

Currently its known by its obscure acronym DSE...(Don't Support Environment, or Department of Sparks and Embers).
