It’s climate change, stupid. Not cats that is impacting birds and wildlife. One in six Australian birds are now threatened, according to a major scientific study led by Stephen Garnett of Charles Darwin University, with input from more than 300 bird experts that finds the climate emergency is pushing species closer to extinction.
What really stands out from the action plan is how quickly climate change is impacting our birds. Let us not forget that billions of creatures perished in bushfires. We, and our Government are responsible. We need to change that.
