Welcome to Australia

"Working to conserve endangered ecosystems in such a beautiful, unspoiled environment, felt like I was helping to protect my perfect vision of paradise."

Derived from the Latin Australis, meaning "southern", Australia forms the mainland of the world's smallest continent. Despite being the world's 6th largest country, its population is only 21 million, and this is highly concentrated along the east and south-eastern coasts. Around 92% of the people living there today are of European origin, with Aboriginal people constituting just 2% of the population. The chief of state is the British monarch Queen Elizabeth II.

Australia is a land of contrasts and dramatic scenery, from the endless desert plains to tropical rainforests. As one of the world's 12 "mega-diverse" countries, with high levels of endemism, it is a must for anyone with an interest in conservation.
