Most people in Australia live in areas that were forested in 1788. Much of it is a now a cultural landscape, and it may be hard to see it as habitat for forest fauna. The challenge of managing Australia's forest fauna across this cultural landscape will be a major test of our civilisation. TheNational Forest Policy Statement (Commonwealth of Australia 1992) opens with the statement: “The Governments share a vision of ecologically sustainable management of Australia's forests”. ThePolicy Statement launched the Regional Forest Agreement (RFA) process, with its emphasis on public forests, and the private forests consequently become the forgotten forests, even though all of it is habitat for forest fauna. One of the successes of the RFA process has been the development of reserve selection procedures. Yet, as necessary as the new reserves are to conserve forest fauna, they are not sufficient to conserve that fauna into the future. Another success isAustralia's State of the Forests Report 2003, and although it contains much valuable information, such as that 70% of Australia's native forest is privately managed, it is far too brief on the matter of forest fauna. The guidance for Australia provided by the British forest historian Oliver Rackham is to see each forest as a unique entity, with its own history, including its pre-European history, and each deserving of special study. If Rackham is right in describing Australia as a miniature planet, then we cannot go elsewhere and start again if we fritter away this opportunity, an ethic that lies behind the diverse chapters in this book. The World Commission on Forests and Sustainable Development noted that forests contain at least two-thirds of the earth's terrestrial species. This second edition of theConservation of Australia's Forest Fauna focuses on Australia's rich share of that international heritage and seeks to conserve forest fauna, wherever it occurs on the landscape, as part of a larger enterprise of conserving Australia's natural legacy.
