To Anthro-L

I have a student that is interested in the history of Australian aborigne
languages. She is interested in:

1. Any info on how many native languages have died, how many survived.
2. The history of Australia's policies towards preserving native
3. Current efforts in this direction.

Are there any juicy sources available on this subject?

Yours Sincerely,
