Australia’s native flora and fauna are the result of hundreds of millions of years of evolution in isolation, and are found nowhere else in the world. Overgrazing and agricultural land clearing erode habitat complexity and species diversity. What’s left behind is a scarred, desertified and eroded husk of once thriving woodlands and sclerophyll forests. G[RAZED] features the night parrot (Pezoporus occidentalis), swift parrot (Lathamus discolor), yellow-tufted honeyeater (Lathamus discolor), Leadbeater’s possum (Gymnobelideus leadbeateri) and a number of native orchids. Endangered native species clinging to existence at the hands of outdated land use and agricultural practices.
