This document outlines how NSW Government’s Saving our Species (SoS) program creates the conservation strategies for ensuring the survival of iconic species.

There are six SoS iconic species: brush tailed rock wallaby, koala, southern corroboree frog, malleefowl, Wollemi pine and plains-wanderer.

The SoS program provides a framework for prioritising investment in threatened species and ecological communities in NSW, based on a cost-benefit approach. The program has categorised six threatened species as iconic species because of their inherent social values and ecological attributes.
