Australia has one of the most biodiverse and unique collections of animals and plants on Earth. Yet, from the time Europeans started calling Australia home, many native species have been fighting for survival, against introduced predators, land clearing and ongoing disturbances to their ecosystems.
Fortunately, many of Australia’s best ‘human’ experts are working hard to halt and even reverse our loss of precious wildlife, with science and technology as their guiding light.
Find out what is being done and what science can offer to maintain and sustain Australia’s amazing natural diversity.
