There's still a very good chance of recovery for most of these species, but only with new targeted conservation effort.
Our research looked at deaths in Australia between 1968 and 2018. While more people tend to die in winter than summer, this gap is narrowing – and that's a worry.

The University of Paris-Saclay is part of a vast research-intensive academic and business cluster being built on former farmland.
