Our most threatened species could slip into extinction because the Coalition Government wants to slash the jobs of 60 of the people who are working to protect them.
Seventeen birds and mammals are expected to disappear in the next year 20 years unless Australia improves its protection of threatened species and their habitat.
The survival of species including the orange-bellied parrot, Northern hopping mouse and helmeted honeyeater depends on the community standing up stop the cuts to the Department of Environment and Energy staff who work to prevent Australia’s accelerating extinction rate. We need long-term resourcing for policy, protection and regulation.
