Recovery plans

Parks and Wildlife, with the help of community groups and local people, develops and implements recovery plans and interim recovery plans for threatened species and ecological communities. The department also prepares wildlife management programs for plants listed as threatened or that the department knows little about (priority flora).

Wildlife management programs

The programs provide a brief description of a plant (appearance, distribution, habitat and conservation status) for a particular area, and include recommendations for research and management necessary to ensure its continued survival. The following plans were current at the time of publishing, but are subject to change. Not all wildlife management plans are available online, but may be viewed at the relevant department offices or at the Conservation Library.
