Experts are warning Australia’s National Parks are facing a ‘death by a thousand cuts’. As protections against grazing, hunting and logging within the parks relax, we are at risk of finding out first-hand just how fragile these eco-systems are, and why they desperately need protecting.

Governments in the eastern states have been relaxing the rules on the use of National Parks and a panel of scientists sees this as a major threat. They say our native biodiversity and even the survival of some species is at serioius risk from these changes.  Changing weather patterns and years of inadequate resoucing and planning add to the problem.
