Our research looked at data from the government’s annual baking competition. Upon close analysis, we find a dangerous lack of diversity and biases towards cute, cuddly mammals.
The planet is entering its sixth mass extinction event. This global nature summit is our best change to stop this tide of destruction.
New research finds nearly 30% of land animals could disappear form their local area by 2100 due to climate change and habitat destruction. This is more than double previous predictions.
About a third of Victoria’s land-based plants, animals and ecological communities face extinction. We look at what the political parties have promised ahead of the state election.
The nature repair market is sold as a good news story: willing land managers benefiting nature with support from the private sector. But if offsets are part of it, the reality could be very different.
38 mammals have been driven to extinction since colonisation, and many more are close to joining them. We have the solutions at hand, but warnings continue to be met with mediocre responses.
Three chief authors of the State of the Environment Report provide its key findings. While it’s a sobering read, there are a few bright spots.
The new paper also found some mammals are suffering due to a lack of fire.
The hardest to save will be five reptiles, four birds, four frogs, two mammals and one fish, for which there are no recent confirmed records of their continued existence.
Labor and the Greens launched environmental policies last week. We take a close look at what was promised, and if they’re enough to tackle Australia’s extinction crisis.
New Zealand’s native wildlife and habitats are at extreme risk, but there is a dangerous disconnect between strategic aspiration and planned action.
The fate of nature underpins our economy and health. Yet in the election campaign to date, there’s been a deafening silence about it.
In some regions, foxes kill at least 1,000 animals per square kilometre every year.
Nine mammals in Northern Australia are at risk of extinction in the next two decades – and we know little about this home-grown crisis.
By spending $2 billion each year for about 30 years, we could restore much of Australia’s severely denuded landscapes.
Many valuable scientific breakthroughs were originally published in a non-English language. New research shows more effort is needed to transcend language barriers to improve conservation science.
Wild sandalwood populations in Australia have been slowly collapsing for decades. New research found the Western Australian government has been warned repeatedly for a century.
While the prospect of reviving extinct species has long been discussed, advances in genome editing have now brought such dreams close to reality.
With targeted conservation action, we might just save many of these species before it’s too late.
Twenty of these freshwater fish species have a 50% or greater probability of extinction within the next 20 years.
