In Melbourne's East, the Swamp Skink (Lissolepis coventryi) and the Glossy Grass Skink (Pseudemoia rawlinsoni) are under significant threat due to the impacts on their habitat through rapid urbanisation, the draining of wetlands and polluting of waterways and changes in climate. Over the last few decades, survey efforts have recorded declining numbers of these skinks.
Rail transport is one of the most energy efficient modes of transport. With greenhouse gas emissions per passenger kilometer for rail transport being up to five times less than that of car transport, it is a good long term solution to reducing our impact on the planet.
