One of the biggest threats to humans and wildlife alike is deforestation.
As the only developed country with a deforestation front, it's no surprise Australia’s mammal extinction rates are the highest in the world. Even iconic native species, like the koala, platypus and the greater glider, are on the road to extinction. In the last 20 years, Queensland’s koala population has declined by over 40%, and in New South Wales, 99% of koala habitat on private land is not protected from clearing.
With support and donations from everyday Australians, the Wilderness Society is advocating for new laws that support the ecosystems our lives depend on, and is undertaking research to blow the lid off this hidden deforestation crisis. By protecting and regenerating our forests, not only do we help our native animals, but we make our soils, wildlife and landscapes more resilient to climate change. We can even reverse our carbon emissions in the process. That’s life support in action!
