Australia is home to some the most amazing creatures and plant life the world. It is famous its diversity of species. However, scientists have just reported a "shocking" loss biodiversity. The government has released its State the Environment Report. It is depressing reading. The report reveals a serious decline biodiversity, an increase in habitat loss, and increasing levels pollution. It concludes that the condition of Australia's environment is "poor and deteriorating". Australia has been hit drought, fires and floods the past five years. These have killed many animals and caused the loss natural habitat. Climate change is also harming Australia's ecosystems.

Australia publishes its State the Environment Report every five years. Each report has painted a sadder picture. The Australian Conservation Foundation said Australia's natural environment is suffering because the government is not taking action. It said: "There's nothing this report we don't know. This is the and every time it has told us that the environment is getting worse and worse and worse because we're not taking the type action we need." Australia has lost more mammal species than any other continent. More than 100 Australian species are now extinct. An environmentalist said the report was, "a wake- call to the damage humans are doing the world us".
