The continent of Australia has a unique depth of flora and fauna, not found anywhere else in the world. In addition to the native indigenous plants and wildlife that previously existed on this continent, colonisation and modernisation has introduce many non indigenous species into Australia from around the world, some of which have done too well and have reached plague proportion, often threatening, if not having already wiped out various native species.
Whilst there is plenty of information that is available in print and on the internet for the web of life, we have added our collection of images, personal encounters and our own interests in living organisms to be found here in Australia.
As we add more images and information about Australian fauna, we hope you enjoy our fauna collection, images from our personal collections, contributors and other sources, offering an insight into what is Australia… enjoy…
