Description

The loss of endangered species and poorly protected regional ecosystems is a national crisis, but it's not time to adopt what's been called 'triage' - giving up on some species while trying to pick conservation 'winners' with others.

Bush Heritage yesterday launched a ten year $20 million national science plan to save Australia's threatened biodiversity.

One key priority is adding up to 70 million extra hectares to Australia's national parks and reserve system.
