Native animals

Threatened and pest animals of Greater Southern Sydney

Overview

A major study to record the distribution and abundance of, and threats facing, native animals of the Greater Southern Sydney Region was undertaken by DECC and the Sydney Catchment Authority between 2002 and 2007. Project staff mapped fauna habitat, and surveyed animals and assessed their conservation status, in the bushland around southern Sydney, Wollongong and the southern Blue Mountains. The study provided much information to help the community ensure the long-term survival of these animals and reduce the impacts of pests.
