Who produced the guide?
This guide was written by Alison Colyer, NSW and ACT Coordinator, Threatened Species Network.
The development of the guide has taken many years and many forms. Thanks to past and ongoing contributors, Claire Carlton and Francesca Andreoni, and to Anna Dawson for her brief but strong support. Staff of the Threatened Species Network and WWF Australia provided on-going guidance and support, as did numerous DEC staff, particularly Linda Bell, Lynn Baker, Bronwyn Batten and Ron Haering, and the Northern Aboriginal Heritage Region.
Thanks must also go to all individuals who provided input to early development, including Toni McLeish, Suzanne O'Neil, Tania Duratovic, Ross Wellington, Kersten Tuckey, Bob Makinson, Bianca Priest and Nicola Markus, and to those who provided and reviewed content to the document, particularly all listed case study contacts.
Special thanks to Geoff Thompson for his assistance in early scoping exercises, the development of some initial draft text, and for getting the ball rolling.
Finally, the author thanks the Department of Environment and Conservation NSW for supporting this project.
