Australia is considered a globally significant biodiversity hotspot, but it’s also ranked among the worst nations for biodiversity loss. As the world changes, populations grow and cities expand, not to mention the compounding impacts of climate change, sea level-rise and habitat loss, how do we protect our precious biodiversity?
Today on Cosmos Briefing we chat with David Lindenmayer, an ecologist and conservation biologist at the Australian National University, about trends in current research, Australia’s biodiverse landscapes, and how we can best conserve them for the future.
