"The rangers play a vital part in protecting nature and cultural heritage. Women rangers tackle environmental threats like feral animals, invasive weeds and arrange controlled burns to pre-empt destructive wildfires.They hunt feral cats (a disappearing skill), arrange collection of marine debris, maintain the last strongholds of the endangered mankarr or greater bilby, rescue and rehabilitate turtles, protect and preserve the wanyarr – the ‘water tree’ - and much more. At the same time, their work has transformative benefits for families, communities and for the women themselves." http://ow.ly/wIPq30k2uiz

This is a problem: “What do tingle pygmy trapdoor spiders from Western Australia, silver-headed antechinus from central Queensland and Duramana fingers orchids from NSW have in common? If you’re waiting for a funny punchline, sorry – the answer is that they're among the 41 new species of Australian plants and animals that are now officially at risk of extinction.” http://ow.ly/Bmz130k2uaY

Sir David Attenborough, is endorsing calls for greater support for the scientists who study and name Australia’s plants and animals and other organisms, declaring that Australia’s current capacity is not adequate for the magnitude of the task. Sir David says that at the very time that many species are under greatest threat, funding and other resources allocated to discovering and documenting species are declining. http://ow.ly/iyUj30jVlg3

Plants use their roots to “listen in” on their neighbours, according to research that adds to evidence that plants have their own unique forms of communication. The study found that plants in a crowded environment secrete chemicals into the soil that prompt their neighbours to grow more aggressively, presumably to avoid being left in the shade. http://ow.ly/DDE630jVlbj
