Natural disasters take a heavy toll on Australia's rivers - Best in Australia

Description

The rivers of Australia are facing a crisis that threatens the extinction of certain species and other long-term detrimental effects as natural disasters continue to batter regions in the country.

Experts warn that the “triple whammy” of impacts — wildfires, flash floods, and drought — will take a devastating toll on ecosystems. These natural disasters are creating cascading impacts on invertebrates, platypus, and fish according to a scientist from the University of Canberra’s Institute for Applied Ecology.
