Spotlight on our endangered and threatened species

May 28, 2014 | ,

We’ve all heard about the plight of the panda and the battle to save the black rhinoceros – but what about the endangered animals that live in the Mackay & Whitsundays?

This month, Reef Catchments has launched a new tool to help put the spotlight on animal and plant species that need looking after in the Mackay and Whitsunday region.

From the Little tern and Beach stone curlew to the Proserpine rock wallaby, our region has a huge diversity of native flora and fauna, much of which is at risk or endangered.

The Online Species Profiles assist to identify the conservation issues for local species and what we can do to protect them.
