Scientists estimate that Australia is home to more than one million (1,000,000) plant and animal species. Many of these are found nowhere else on the planet. Since Australia was colonized in 1788, some 125 animal and plant species, or subspecies, are known to have become extinct. More mammals have died out in Australia in the last 200 years than in any other country. Today, more than 360 of Australia’s animal species are considered threatened.
