Changes in conservation issues relating to forest mammals in northern Queensland over the past 12 years are assessed for the major forest types. Considerable advances have been made in our understanding of the biology of northern Queensland mammals and in their conservation at a local scale. The habitat of rainforest mammals is mostly protected by World Heritage listing and other legislative measures, the ecology and distribution of species in tall open forest and woodlands is much better known, but mammals in mangroves are mostly overlooked. However, broad scale major threats are now apparent. Global warming may catastrophically reduce the habitat of upland rainforest and tall open forest species, and climate change may also be an issue in lowland and drier habitats; a rise in sea level accompanying global warming may eliminate extensive areas of mangroves; and more intensive use of tropical woodland may lead to large scale declines of many native species in this habitat unless mitigating measures are taken.
