Summary

Global warming, biodiversity loss, salinity. There is no doubt Australia's environmental problems appear huge and overwhelming. Not only is our unique natural heritage under threat, but the consequences for agriculture, tourism and the economy may be catastrophic. Can anything be done to halt the destruction?The good news is much can be done. In this powerful and passionate book, scientist David Lindenmayer argues that Australia does have the knowledge and resources to tackle our environmental problems. In addition, he outlines creative and impressive solutions that we can all be a part of. It's not too late yet.
