Subscription to our newsletter keeps you up to date with our sightings of birds and animals, our travels and a bit of comment here and there. We never pass your address to third parties.
In this section we will publish an array of invertebrates.
Invertebrates include insects, spiders, worms, centipedes, beetles and hoppers.
Australia is estimated to have between 275,000 and 300,000 species of invertebrates that live on the land alone. Many of these species are unique to Australia.
According to the Australian Museum website, Scientists believe that only 15% of our invertebrates have been described. This is considered quite concerning because of habitat destruction around the country.
Unless we know where our birds, animals and invertebrates fit into our ecology, it is very hard to provide the protection our planet deserves.
