Speaking on Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) radio on Tuesday, lead researcher Dr Thomas Newsome said that conservation efforts were widely targeted
at larger endangered species such as sharks and rhinos, meaning smaller,
hard-to-find Australian species such as the wallaby and the bilby are left at
the greatest risk of extinction.
"We've basically neglected a whole suite of species Cheap Hydro Flask Coffee 20 oz Coffee Pink , and our research suggests that we should be putting just as much effort into the smaller species as the
larger ones," Newsome said.
He said that widespread land clearing, aggressive farming practices and the introduction of foreign predators posed the greatest risk to some of Australia's
most iconic species, and had contributed to Australia having the highest mammal
extinction rate in the world.
"A lot of the freshwater fish in Australia have been ignored, and these species have highly restricted and specialized habitat requirements. Habitat
loss can basically wipe out a single species in one blow Cheap Hydro Flask Beer & Wine 10 oz Wine Tumbler Red ," he said.
"For the mammals on the other hand, it's small wallabies and bilbies which are highly threatened. In fact, Australia has the highest extinction rate in the
world for mammals.
"We've lost 30 mammals to extinction in the past 200 years - that's half the world's mammal extinctions in our own backyard. And when you take these animals
out of the system, there can be cascading impacts on the ecosystem."
Newsome said that in order to lower the extinction rate in Australia, more funding for smaller species was required Cheap Hydro Flask Hydration 21 oz Standard Mouth w Sport Cap Red , while a lessened human impact on the ecosystem was also required.
"We need to slow down the rate of deforestation, and probably need to change our forestry practices, but unfortunately policy is heading in the other
direction," Newsome said.

Paralympic-style games in Toronto on Monday.

they took in the match from the sidelines. Between sets, they turned around in
their seats to chat with Invictus Games fans around them.

they asked me if I enjoyed the game and who I was cheering on.”
Kylie Lawler, whose husband Sean Lawler played for the Australian team Cheap Hydro Flask Hydration 24 oz Standard Mouth White , said that the couple “seemed at home with each other” and were “very easy to talk to.”
