Preventing extinctions of Australian lizards and snakes

Tue, 02 Feb 2021

Australia is a land of reptiles, but many of our unique species are at risk. Eleven species of snakes and lizards are likely to become extinct by 2040 unless there is a stepping up of conservation action. We've identified the top 20 lizards and snakes at risk to give governments, conservation groups and the community time to act before it is too late.

This research was undertaken by a team of 27 reptile specialists from across the country. It received funding from the Australian Government's National Environmental Science Program.
