2 New Species have been added to the endangered list in Australia
Recently, due to the Black Summer bushfires of 2019 and 2020, two new species have been added to Australia’s list of threatened animals. The mountain skink and the south-eastern glossy black cockatoo are both species whose habitats were badly damaged due to the fires and other threats. Despite this, there is an issue with the protection of these endangered species. Brendan Wintle, Professor in Conservation Ecology at the University of Melbourne talked to our host, Maddy, about this.
