On this episode of Policy Forum Pod, Chief Executive Officer of the Australian Conservation Foundation Kelly O’Shanassy joins us to talk about habitat destruction, the future of Australia’s threatened species, and why governments must do more to protect biodiversity.Since colonisation, Australia’s native species have lived under enormous strain. In the two centuries since, some 30 Australian mammals have been made extinct, accounting for more than a third of global mammal extinctions since 1500. Despite this, the Australian Government has been approving development projects resulting in habitat destruction at an alarming rate, according to a new report by the Australian Conservation Foundation. So, what should policymakers be doing to reverse this disturbing trend? On this episode of Policy Forum Pod, Kelly O’Shanassy, Chief Executive Officer of the Australian Conservation Foundation, joins Professor Sharon Bessell and Dr Arnagretta Hunter to discuss the urgent need to protect Australia’s native species.Kelly O’Shanassy is Chief Executive Officer of the Australian Conservation Foundation.
