Globally, species loss and threats are enormous and only increasing, especially in Australia. Underpinning change to this trajectory is a fierce disconnect between us knowing what needs to be done and what is being done. My interest lies in examining the reasons behind this chasm through a political lens, with a focus on Australia. By drawing on economics, political science, policy analysis, and spatial and statistical modelling I aim to delve into the causes behind policy/legislative shortfalls and insufficient resource allocation.
