Australia is home to an amazing diversity of native wildlife.
Over 200,000 species of animals, at least 34,000 kinds of plants, and 250,000 types of fungi and lichen have been recorded so far.
Most of our native biodiversity occurs nowhere else on Earth.
This book takes you on a journey to explore our continent’s habitats, to understand native ecosystems, and to discover the Amazing range of life that calls Australia home.
Over three hundred native (and often little known) species are depicted in spectacular imagery and described in concise text, each with conservation status ratings.
Designed specifically for the 8–12 year old age group.
