We're protecting Australia's cherished natural places and wildlife from invasive species, one of the top three threats facing our native plants, animals.
Along with climate change and habitat loss, invasive species are one of the top three threats facing Australia’s native plants, wildlife and ecosystems.
We have one of the worst animal extinction records in the world, due mainly to invasive species. We are also notorious for having lost by far the highest number of mammals in recent times, with foxes, cats or rabbits implicated in most of these extinctions.
Our work focuses on strengthening laws and policies to prevent future invasions and better protect the Australian environment against these threats.
