The dingo fence is the longest fence in the world. The environment looks almost identical on either side — until you view it from space.
In Australia and around the world, failures in flood warnings can have devastating effects. But 'humanitarian engineering' may have the answer.
Australia needs to drop the deception that square kilometres say anything meaningful about conservation.
Given climate change predictions of more extreme floods in New Zealand, it's time to change management practices to work with a river, allowing it room to move and its channels to adjust.
Aung San Suu Kyi's government did not have a perfect environmental record. But at least things were starting to change.
Given its environmental damage, tourism must seriously reconsider its purpose in a post-pandemic world.
With their prominent foreheads, low eye position and rounded body, koalas can seem almost baby-like. But is that enough to save them?

New research fired laser beams on tiger snake scales, and found arsenic was 20-34 times higher in wild wetland snakes than in captive snakes.
The real target is China. Australia will be collateral damage.
We discovered 11 (and probably more) new species of stygofauna living in water underground. These animals are usually blind, beautifully translucent and long-limbed.
Research measuring how water flows between living kauri trees and a leafless stump adds evidence that trees use their underground root systems to support each other.
If you're doing something (even if you know you probably shouldn't), you're more likely to think lots of other people do it too. You also likely overestimate how much other people think it's OK.
When disaster strikes, not everyone is affected the same way. Research shows the experiences of sexually and gender diverse people are frequently very different to those of heterosexual people.
As recent political history shows, emissions reduction targets must be legally binding if we're to have any hope of reaching them.
A major new report from the Productivity Commission calls for an overhaul of Australia’s 17-year-old policy on water.
Over six months, 73,991 tourists visited the continent. The potential to spread coronavirus to penguins, whales and other wildlife is enormous.
Cats kill a staggering 1.7 billion native animals each year, and threaten at least 120 species with extinction. Five experts analyse a parliamentary report on the problem.
Mercury is a nasty toxin that harms humans and ecosystems. The gold and sugar-cane industries have tackled the problem, and it's time for coal to follow suit.
No-one says reducing emissions from the agriculture sector will be easy. But it must be done, or farmers will suffer the most.
