Australia is famous for its amazing creatures and plants. However, scientists have reported a "shocking" loss of nature. The government has a depressing report about this. It says there is a decrease in biodiversity. A lot of natural habitat has been lost, and there is more pollution. Climate change is damaging Australia's nature.

Australia makes its report every five years. Each report is worse than the ones before. A nature group said the government is not taking action. It said: "The environment is getting worse and worse." Australia has lost more than 100 species of mammals. The report is like a red alert. It shows how we are damaging nature.
