The Bartlett Diaries: Biodiversity & Deep Sea Trawling: Tuesday – (pt iii).
If you want to know a bit more about the Southwest Australia Ecoregion mentioned in Andrew’s post, check out the SW Australia Initiative website. WWF International calls biodiversity hotspots “Global 200 Ecoregions” (the SWA Ecoregion page has more).
The (soon to be expanded) Woodland Watch and Bush Brokers programs are quite innovative in the way they approach conservation by engaging property owners and local communities.
Disclosure: For those that don’t already know, I work for WWF-Australia, managing their website (I felt this worth mentioning as my about page is currently broken).
