Protecting Australia's Nature
Australia is the only nation on Earth that also spans a continent. As a result of its isolation over many millions of years, Australia is one of 17 nations in the world to be considered "megadiverse" because of its exceptional biodiversity. In 2007, Pew began its conservation work in Australia, and as our program matured, we formed partnerships with First Nations communities and local conservation partners to advance place-based protection. Pew is a results-oriented organization. Our work with partners and stakeholders has led to the declaration of the world's largest network of marine parks, the doubling of Outback land protected in Australia's National Reserve System and securing of more than $1 billion in funding for Indigenous land management. While efforts have expanded Australia's terrestrial and marine protected areas, the ecological health of Australia's landscapes is threatened by a range of pressures, including invasive species, habitat loss, overfishing, water extraction, and climate change. Australia's key environmental indicators continue to decline, including the conservation status of threatened and endemic species. Recently, Pew's Protecting Australia's Nature team and our partners have expanded our goals to encompass a continental focus, aiming to extend protection to critical terrestrial, marine, and freshwater systems by drawing on a robust network of influence both federally and in the states where we campaign.
