Race to save Australia’s most endangered and genetically important species of bird on National Threatened Species Day.

Today, Monday 7 September, is National Threatened Species Day – a day to stop and take notice of our native animals that desperately need our help before it is too late. The day also celebrates the many great conservation workers and the work that they are doing nation-wide. We salute you!

National Threatened Species day originated in 1996 to mark the 60th anniversary of the death of the last remaining Tasmanian tiger in Hobart Zoo. Over the last two hundred years it is believed that more than 100 species of plants and animals have become extinct with thousands of others at the risk of extinction.

As a conservation charity, we firmly believe that you’re never too young to start learning the importance of helping to save species – that’s why we’ve teamed up with the Jane Goodall Institute to promote the launch of An Antechinus in the Attic on National Threatened Species Day.

Sales from the book (with a forward by Dr Jane Goodall DBE) help to fund vital conservation work including work undertaken by Zoos SA. You can help us and our conservation work by purchasing the book through this link. Thank you in advance.
