CANBERRA cheap adidas superstar , Sept. 19 (Xinhua) -- Australia's smallest endangered species are at the greatest risk of extinction thanks to an imbalance in conservation funding and awareness campaigns, according to a global study headed by a researcher from Deakin University.

Speaking on Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) radio on Tuesday, lead researcher Dr Thomas Newsome said that conservation efforts were widely targeted at larger endangered species such as sharks and rhinos, meaning smaller, hard-to-find Australian species such as the wallaby and the bilby are left at the greatest risk of extinction.

"We've basically neglected a whole suite of species, and our research suggests that we should be putting just as much effort into the smaller species as the larger ones," Newsome said.

He said that widespread land clearing, aggressive farming practices and the introduction of foreign predators posed the greatest risk to some of Australia's most iconic species, and had contributed to Australia having the highest mammal extinction rate in the world.

"A lot of the freshwater fish in Australia have been ignored, and these species have highly restricted and specialized habitat requirements. Habitat loss can basically wipe out a single species in one blow," he said.

"For the mammals on the other hand, it's small wallabies and bilbies which are highly threatened. In fact, Australia has the highest extinction rate in the world for mammals.

"We've lost 30 mammals to extinction in the past 200 years - that's half the world's mammal extinctions in our own backyard. And when you take these animals out of the system, there can be cascading impacts on the ecosystem."

Newsome said that in order to lower the extinction rate in Australia, more funding for smaller species was required, while a lessened human impact on the ecosystem was also required.

"We need to slow down the rate of deforestation, and probably need to change our forestry practices, but unfortunately policy is heading in the other direction," Newsome said.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are feeling the love at the Invictus Games! The royal couple walked hand-in-hand into the wheelchair tennis event at the Paralympic-style games in Toronto on Monday.

Markle looked chic and casual in a white blouse and jeans, while the prince wore his Invictus Games polo shirt. They both sported matching sunglasses as they took in the match from the sidelines. Between sets, they turned around in their seats to chat with Invictus Games fans around them.

She added, “The rules are different to normal tennis as well so they were talking about that. Harry was explaining it to her. They were absolutely lovely, they asked me if I enjoyed the game and who I was cheering on.”

Kylie Lawler, whose husband Sean Lawler played for the Australian team, said that the couple “seemed at home with each other” and were “very easy to talk to.”

And while they chatted with fans about the games, there “was no wedding talk at all,” Kylie added. “They seemed lovely. They were having a lovely time.”

After the match, which New Zealand won, the couple stood and chatted with fans. They then left the venue walking hand-in-hand to cheers from the crowd.

On Saturday, the royal couple made their first official appearance together at the opening ceremony at the games, where Markle supported her boyfriend from the stands.

Markle wore a purple dress with a purple leather coat over her shoulders as she sat with friend Markus Anderson. She stood along with the rest of the crowd during the Canadian national anthem and clapped heartily as Prime Minister Justin Trudeau (her acquaintance and a friend of Harry) made his welcome address.

Markle recently opened up about Harry, telling Vanity Fair: “I can tell you that at the end of the day, I think it’s really simple. We’re two people who are really happy and in love.”
