Density of threatened fauna species habitat
Almost one-quarter of threatened fauna pre-clear habitat has been cleared across Queensland, with 8% of remaining habitat protected within a national park.
Modelling identifies 119 million hectares of pre-clear habitat for 176 currently threatened terrestrial fauna species.
Prior to land clearing, high densities of threatened fauna habitat were found in the South East Queensland (SEQ), Wet Tropics and New England Tablelands bioregions.
High densities of threatened fauna habitat remained in these bioregions in 2017. However, across Queensland, 24.7% of pre-clearing threatened fauna habitat had been cleared by 2017.
- Of the habitat that was remnant vegetation in 2017, only 8.4% was protected within a national park.
