Home To Unique Wildlife and Plant Species
Southwestern Australia brims with a dizzying array of plants and wildlife. From ancient rainforests along the coast to the edge of the legendary Australian Outback, this large, biologically diverse corner of Australia is home to 10,000 distinct plant and animal species, including kangaroos, emus, dingoes, wallabies and tiny honey possums. Over half of the plant species and 20 percent of the animal species are found nowhere else on Earth.
The exceptional plant diversity of the Great Western Woodlands' Gondwana Link is one of the primary reasons for the region's conservation significance.
A multitude of pressures increasingly threaten the region's rich plant and animal life — 2,500 plant species are on the verge of extinction. Invasive species and climate change are driving a second wave of habitat destruction. Land fragmentation from development, mining and other human activities is increasingly disrupting the vital ecological systems and delicate processes that sustain the region's unique plant and wildlife.
