Earth Day 2019: Protect Our Species

Australia has the worst mammal extinction rate in the world. In a global context, 1 out of 3 mammal extinctions in the last 400 years have occurred in Australia including the loss of iconic species such as the Tasmanian Tiger. Today some of Australia’s rarest animals live only on off-shore islands where high-quality habitat still exists and predation from foxes and cats is not widespread.

Tasmania, Australia’s largest island, is the last refuge for some of Australia’s most critically endangered animals – species that are now virtually extinct elsewhere including the Tasmanian Devil, Eastern Bettong, Eastern Quoll and Eastern Barred Bandicoot. Restoring Tasmanian landscapes at scale provides a unique opportunity to safeguard these iconic species through reconnecting and expanding critical habitat along watercourses and by integrating increased native vegetation cover into productive agricultural landscapes.

Together with local farmers, Greening Australia’s Tasmania Island Ark program will recreate over 6,000 ha of wildlife habitat across the Tasmania.

This Earth Day, we’re all working together to protect our species. Your donations will help to create a stronghold for endangered wildlife in Tasmania, while revitalising local farming communities.
