Providing a detailed snapshot of the condition of Australia's remarkable plants, wildlife, and their living landscapes, this informative account examines the environmental changes that are causing many plants and animals to be threatened with extinction. Outlining increasing dangers—loss of native habitat, the introduction of foreign plants and animals, and the impacts of excessive agricultural development—this passionate polemic examines the main conservation approaches, provides insight into law and politics, questions the power of lobby groups, and offers realistic actions for slowing the steady decline of the Australian natural heritage.

"Australia faces unique conservation challenges that most Australians do not know enough about. On Our Watch is an attempt to remedy this situation." "Respected conservationist Nicola Markus believes that it is time people realised that our environmental issues are not being solved by those tasked with their solution, and that the support and involvement of the public is essential if we are to make a difference in environmental conservation." "In this thoroughly researched and passionately written book, Markus explains the very real and immediate threats to Australia's natural environment and cuts through the spin to show how you can become involved in conserving our environmental heritage."--Back cover.
