Habitat for native bees is being improved through our River Torrens Recovery Project. Why is fauna important? Native animals are important for many reasons: We share their landscapes and ecosystems, including the air we breathe, the water we drink, the food we eat, the places we live in and the places we visit.
The world human population is expanding rapidly, placing great demands on our environment and its resources, including wild animals and their habitats. If we did not manage native animals, we risk more becoming endangered and extinct. Threats to fauna habitat loss is the single biggest threat to native animals both locally and globally habitat fragmentation makes it difficult for animals to move from one patch to another habitat alteration such as the loss of understorey shrubs, logs, food plants, old trees with hollows feral animals which are competitors, predators and poisoners to native animals barriers to movement within and between areas of habitat hunting of native animals road-kill can cause local extinction in some regions and is a constant welfare problem disruptive human activities such as unsustainable tourism, recreational activities and industrial practices in important areas of habitat.Mass Extinction Underway, Majority of Biologists Say Washington Post Tuesday, April 21, [Note: scroll down this page for HUNDREDS of links to updates about the current mass extinction.
Director’s Note: The science and research done on the true impacts of animal agriculture is always growing.

Animals: Biodiversity and Natural Habitat Posted on June 18, March 28, Author admin Comment(0) Send Animals should not be kept in any form of captivity. The variety of life on Earth, its biological diversity is commonly referred to as biodiversity.
The number of species of plants, animals, and microorganisms, the enormous diversity of genes in these species, the different ecosystems on the planet, such as deserts, rainforests and coral reefs are all part of a biologically diverse Earth. Rocky outcrops are landscape features with disproportionately high biodiversity values relative to their size.
They support specialised plants and animals, and a wide variety of endemic species.
