KBAs in danger: the state of Australia's key biodiversity areas in 2017

4 Jun 2017
Description

An assessment of the current status of Australia's Key Biodiversity Areas (KBAs) paints a grim picture for threatened birds. In 2017, 19 KBAs have been declared as 'in danger' of losing the environmental values that make them important. These KBAs require urgent action to arrest their decline. Each of these KBAs in Danger provides habitat for species that could soon become extinct should the current threats persist. To highlight this, BirdLife Australia is turning its attention to five KBAs in urgent need of protection.

The 2017 'KBAs in Danger' report provides a snapshot of the health of five KBAs that require urgent intervention. This report outlines the most pressing threats, along with straightforward recommendations to ensure the critical habitats in these KBAs and the birds that depend on them are not lost forever.
