What will Antarctica look like in 2070? Will the icy wilderness we know today survive, or will it succumb to climate change and human pressure? Our choices over the coming decade will seal its fate.

Since 1995, several ice shelves off the Antarctic Peninsula have abruptly disintegrated. A new analysis suggests that these events are triggered when ice shelves lose their buffer of floating ice.
Wedge-tailed eagles have been found poisoned in East Gippsland.
The poisoning of dozens of wedge-tailed hawks in Victoria could affect the entire wild population.
The latest research suggests that in Australia, rooftop solar photovoltaics are more likely to be adopted by middle-class households.
Households that are most likely to go solar are those that can afford solar panels, but aren't so rich that they don't have to worry about their electricity bill at all, says a survey of 8,000 homes.
An 1870 news report said wild horses were “hated and shot by all”. What has changed since?
Brumbies have a devoted following among high country locals, despite the fact that they were despised by colonial settler farmers. Their mythical status today owes a lot to cultural figures such as Banjo Paterson.
Livestock is a significant source of methane, a potent but short-lived greenhouse gas.
New research has suggested a fresh way to account for greenhouse gases with different lifetimes in the atmosphere.
For decades, state and federal governments have shed environmental budgets and staff. Now it's up to volunteers to fill the gap.
Southern Australia's debate may be exacerbated by climate change, but it's not that simple.
Small aircraft carry scientists high above the Southern Alps to survey glacier changes.
Forty years of continuous end-of-summer snowline monitoring of New Zealand's glaciers brings the issue of human-induced climate change into tight focus.

The 'brumby bill' which passed the NSW upper house late last night, is an embarrassing step backwards for the state.
Australia was thought to have some of the most sustainable fisheries in the world, but a recent count has found that fish numbers have plummeted by a third.
According to a recent report, New Zealand will need to increase renewable electricity generation, plant more trees and continue switching to electric transport more rapidly to achieve its zero carbon goal by 2050.
New Zealand has set itself a goal of becoming carbon neutral by 2050, and a recent report by the Productivity Commission lays out how it could hit that target.

Mala, also known as rufous hare-wallabies, will be protected behind an enormous cat-proof fence.
Conservation fences create a few hundred square kilometres of safety for vulnerable native animals surrounded by 7.6 million lethal square kilometres.
Crowdfunded campaigns to save the orange-bellied parrot are a rare ray of hope.
When environmental needs outstrip government funds, people power steps up.
Poor tropical nations are likely to feel the effects of climate change most acutely.
Global warming will be most noticeable where the weather doesn't normally vary much, such as the tropics. But these places are also home to many of the world's poorest and least culpable nations.
