Biodiversity is the variety of all life forms on earth – around 84% of plants, 83% of mammals, and 45% of birds found only in Australia. Invasive species pose major threats to the rangelands biodiversity, reducing overall species abundance and diversity. Fire of an unnatural frequency and intensity, flooding and drought through land damage and climate change are all threatening our natural biodiversity. Working across these areas we work to protect and retain this abundance and diversity.
