Australia is a land of diverse and stunning ecosystems, and home to many unique plants and wildlife. Australia also has the highest mammal extinction rate in the world and is experiencing significant declines of many species. Using science and Indigenous Ecological Knowledge, WWF is rewilding Australia by returning locally-extinct species.
Animals like quolls and devils help regulate ecosystems, while bandicoots, potoroos and bettongs are ecosystem engineers - turning over soil, burying leaf litter and supporting seed germination that helps to Regenerate Australia. WWF is committed to reversing the decline of Australia’s wildlife and helping restore biodiversity.
