"a third of Australia's threatened species were not being monitored... currently spending about a tenth of what we need to spend,"

:"Three extinctions in the last decade

In the last decade alone a bat, a skink and a rat have become extinct in Australia.

The Morrison Government's new Environment Minister, Sussan Ley, told Four Corners the Government is "picking where we can make a difference".

"It's not about waving a cheque book at the levels of threatened species, it's about sensible funding, which we do," she said."

I am in pain ~ Humanity has the $$$$ it is just their greed for more $$$ and unless they can poach the animal they will kill or ignore it! What a pitiful WORLD WE ALL ARE ON. GREED/FRAUD/FILTHY PEOPLE...
