Cuban scientists are racing to save the critically endangered Cuban crocodile — the world’s rarest, reports Ian Ellis-Jones.
Communities are organising to protect the remains of burnt state forests for their intrinsic value and for endangered species, writes Paul Oboohov.
Proposed new logging rules for NSW public land will convert much of the north coast's public forests into “quasi-plantations”, reduce buffers on vital headwater streams and remove protections from most threatened animals and plants.
The proposed changes remove the need to look for and protect most threatened plants and animals. Only 14 animal species and populations are to retain their current protection, 23 will have their protection removed and 26 will have their protection significantly reduced.
