species & mammal

Quotations:

qanda_2015_ep14

Greg Hunt: [species; mammal] No, no. What we need is very strong animal prevention or animal cruelty prevention laws, but also species protection and that's the thing that we're facing in Australia now. Species decline in particularly we've  lost a lot of mammals. So the whole notion of protecting species and species recovery is a space for government to play in.

Definitions:

species:
a subdivision of a genus considered as a basic biological classification and containing individuals that resemble one another and may interbreed;

mammal:
any animal that gives birth to live babies, not eggs, and feeds its young on milk. Cows, humans and whales are all mammals.
