#154 January-February 2020
Our cover star for our Jan/Feb edition is a Honey possum (Tarsipes rostratus), a species endemic to southwest Australia. Their home is in one of the world’s top biodiversity hotspots, home to a vast array of plants and animals, and the centre for a major conservation project by Greening Australia. In this issue we explore this ambitious project which aims to protect and conserve 1,000 km of southwest Western Australia, from the high-rainfall Tall Karri Forests and wetlands of the southwest corner, to the semi-arid woodlands and Mallee district bordering the Nullarbor Plain. AG contributor Andrew Gregory invites us into his backyard to meet his neighbours, a pair of endangered Powerful owls and their new offspring, and discuss the plight of Australia’s largest owl. We head down the Snowy in a kayak, and take a walk through Mackay’s hinterland, explore the newest national park, Houtman Abrolhos and dive beneath the waves to discover the research into fish intelligence. We explore our ancient galleries in Arnhem Land and the plans to conserve and protect them. We celebrate the 60th birthday of the prestigious Australian of the year award, and meet the state finalists for 2020.
Plus, we have 10 copies of our stunning new book In Living Memory to giveaway! (Enter here)
