How will this population be managed?

OEH is currently developing a targeted approach for managing threatened populations. In the interim, the following management actions have been identified for this population.
  • Undertake surveys to determine distribution and habitat preferences.
  • Undertake habitat mapping using API and vegetation assessment.
  • Develop habitat maps and assessment guidelines for Council and the CMA.
  • Identify priority areas for habitat restoration to increase the extent and connectivity of habitat.
  • Develop guidelines for habitat restoration activities including key tree species, combinations and configurations.
  • Investigate the use of nest boxes to improve habitat quality in areas with few or no hollows.
  • Encourage landowners to remove barbed wire from the top strand of existing fences and to not use barbed wire for the top strand of new fences in forested areas. .
  • Increase community awareness of the status, ecology and management of the population through the provision of information (brochures, web, media, forums, field visits).
