Threatened Species

COP15: Biodiversity’s time to shine

Australia is one of the 17 megadiverse countries, which means our species are unique and found nowhere else on this Earth. Yet the five-year ‘State of the Environment’ report released in July laid bare that our natural environment is deteriorating due to increasing pressure from climate change, habitat destruction, invasive species, pollution, and resource extraction.

Nature Positive, Carbon Positive Solutions

Achieving a Nature Positive world involves halting and reversing current trends of ecological destruction that affect biodiversity. Preserving our flora and fauna plays a significant role in combatting climate change. A loss of one species, whether plant or animal, can significantly impact other species, including us as humans, and have devastating impacts to our environment.

kaarakin conservation centre & The Endangered Carnaby’s Black Cockatoo

In 2014, we assisted Kaarakin Conservation Centre in planting 38 hectares of the Banyowla Regional Park with native species known to be essential to the feeding, breeding, and roosting cycles of three endangered cockatoo species. We might be experts in biodiverse plantings, but we are not orinthologists, so we met with Sam Clarke, Animal Management & Education Officer, to discuss all things cockatoos.

“Black Cockatoo Crisis”: A New film from jane hammond

In Black Cockatoo Crisis, Jane follows the plight of Western Australia’s three southwest black cockatoo species, the Baudin, Carnaby’s, and Red Tail, and explores what can be done to save these birds from extinction. Numbers for the species have fallen dramatically over the past few decades and all three birds could become extinct in just 20 years unless something is done to protect their habitat.

Can Carbon Protect Species?

At Carbon Positive Australia, we know first-hand that conservation costs money and recovering threatened species takes effort. We know that our carbon planting can and does protect species. We know this because our Citizen Science projects undertaken with CCWA and other organisations provide us with this valuable data.
