Do you find this worrying? Western Australia’s wildlife and ecosystems are heading for a profound crash, and WA is the only Australian state that doesn’t have a state-wide plan to conserve biodiversity and prevent major losses. A WWF report states that south-west Australia will become unsuitable for 30-60% of species across all groups by the 2080s. http://ow.ly/rpsg30jrPSL

Check out the 52 winning entries from the 2017 Wild Eye and 2018 Canberra Nature Map photographic competitions at the CSIRO Discovery Centre at Black Mountain, Canberra until 16 April. Scientists and naturalist groups have built up an amazing database with over 1.2 million records of over 7000 local species, in excess of 250,000 wildlife images, mostly captured with the NatureMapr App on mobile phones. http://ow.ly/51Nr30jrPWI

Looking at more than 300 summits scattered across the continent, they found that five times as many plant types migrated to higher ground over the last decade than did 50 years ago, from 1957 to 1966. High mountain areas have warmed nearly twice as much as the planet as a whole, which has seen an increase of one degree Celsius (1.8 degrees Fahrenheit) since the mid-19th century.

Who do you barrack for: the hunter or the prey? The leopard or the gazelle? The frog or the snake? The fly or the flytrap? Enter the glittering and sensual world of plants with a thirst for blood.

For those with a penchant for Sunday gardening, especially those in Victoria, it's time to plant those native correas. "Our native correas are starting to bud up and flower now and will continue to bloom right through winter...Correas are great for attracting birds into the garden with their nectar-laden flowers." http://ow.ly/hUGV30jkai0
