Dr. Graeme Worboys has alerted us that an important environmental report has recently been published.  The Australian State of the Environment Report on Connectivity Conservation, prepared by Ian Pulsford and Graeme is now publicly available on this website: http://www.environment.gov.au/soe/2011/report/land/index.html

We are pleased to announce that the fourth national assessment of the state of Australia’s environment was launched today by the Minister for Sustainability, Environment, Water, Population and Communities, the Hon Tony Burke MP. For the first time in national environmental reporting, Australia State of the Environment 2011 goes beyond a descriptive summary of evidence to include graded ‘report-card’ style assessments of environment condition and trends, pressures and management effectiveness. It also includes discussions of the drivers of environmental change, resilience, risks, and future projections or ‘outlooks’. Written by an independent committee of experts, the report covers nine aspects of the Australian environment – atmosphere, inland water, land, marine environment, Antarctic environment, biodiversity, heritage, built environment and coasts. The State of the Environment 2011 Committee and Department of Sustainability, Environment, Water, Population and Communities thank you for your involvement in the report’s preparation.  Australia State of the Environment 2011 is available online, along with a range of additional material, at www.environment.gov.au/soe <http://www.environment.gov.au/soe>
