We are lucky to have many wonderful native animals in Australia. We are one of the few continents to have all three groups of mammals (monotremes, marsupials and placentals). Some of these amazing creatures are at risk of extinction. Northern Beaches Council is committed to conserving our native wildlife.
Threatened, Endangered or Vulnerable, What Does It Mean?
The term threatened is used to describe species that are both endangered and vulnerable. Endangered species are those that are likely to become extinct if threats continue to the species. Vulnerable species are those that are likely to become endangered should threats continue to the species.
