On this year’s International Day of Biodiversity, we are showcasing some of our scientists who are working to safeguard our ecosystems – both far away and close to home.
Rewilding is gaining popularity around the world, as a means to restore ecosystems to their ancient state. But just like Vegemite, Australian rewilding projects need to have a unique flavour.
A new study by UNSW scientists has shown how the presence – and absence – of dingoes affects the desert landscape.
Wild bilbies have learnt to avoid an old enemy, but are less cautious of a newer predator, new research suggests.
The Greater Bilby has not been seen in the wild in NSW for more than a century. Deborah Smith reports on an ambitious comeback plan.
