Preserving Australian native fauna: zoo-based breeding programs as part of a more unified strategic approach

Preserving Australian native fauna: zoo-based breeding programs as part of a more unified strategic approach | Endangered species Australia | Scoop.it

High extinction rates and loss of biodiversity is a critical conservation matter. Twenty-two Australian mammal species have become extinct in the last 200 years. Of the 95 mammal species under the EPBC Act, 51 have recovery plans and 15 of these have captive components. Zoo-based programs as part of a recovery plan can ‘buy’ time for critically endangered species.

Australia's critically endangered animal species

Australia's critically endangered animal species | Endangered species Australia | Scoop.it

Australia has 96 critically endangered animal species, listed below. Over the coming months, we will be publishing a profile of each of them, looking at the threats to their survival, what’s being done to protect them, and what more needs to be done.

“Critically endangered” is the highest threat level that can be assigned to a wild species (lower levels are “endangered” and “vulnerable”). These species are either facing an extremely high risk of extinction, or have numbers which decreased (or will) by 80% within three generations. Some of these species may already be extinct.

This, sadly monstrous, list of endangered species in Australia tells the tale, of not only how many more species of animals Australia could hold, of the rare animals in Australia.
These species deserve a little TLC.
