We’re so proud of our amazing Australia – we have over 147,000 species known to science and more than 80% of our plant and animal species can’t be found anywhere else on earth – including most of our freshwater fish and almost all our mammals!

Our native species have been living in Australia for millions of years – but many are now at risk. In fact over one third of all the mammal species that have become extinct worldwide in the past 200 years have been lost from Australia, meaning we have the highest rate of mammal extinction in the world. And almost 1 in 3 of our mammals are still at risk, vulnerable to feral animals, wildfire, disease and loss of their habitat.

To conserve a species we start with conserving their habitat. Find out how we’re supporting conservation across more than 127 million hectares for Australia’s unique and threatened species.

With your help, we can look after our unique Australian wildlife and their habitat
