Priority actions by type of threatened species

The Department of Environment and Conservation has prepared a Priorities Action Statement (PAS) to promote the recovery of threatened species and the abatement of key threatening processes in New South Wales.

The Priorities Action Statement identifies a number of broad strategies to help threatened plants and animals recover in New South Wales. Each of these strategies have more specific priority actions within them.

Select an item from the list below to see priority actions for all species of that type.

Set priorities for protecting foraging habitat critical to the survival of Grey-headed Flying-foxes and generate maps of priority foraging habitat. Pteropus poliocephalus Grey-headed Flying-fox Animal > Bats High
Protect and enhance priority foraging habitat for Grey-headed Flying-foxes, for example through management plans, local environmental plans and development assessments, and through volunteer conservation programs for privately owned land. Pteropus poliocephalus Grey-headed Flying-fox Animal > Bats Low
Grey-headed Flying-fox National Recovery Team to undertake an annual review of the national recovery plan's implementation. Pteropus poliocephalus Grey-headed Flying-fox Animal > Bats High
Increase the extent and viability of foraging habitat for Grey-headed Flying-foxes that is productive during winter and spring (generally times of food shortage), including habitat restoration/rehabilitation works. Pteropus poliocephalus Grey-headed Flying-fox Animal > Bats High
Establish & maintain a range-wide database of Grey-headed Flying-fox camps, including information on location, tenure, zoning & history of use, for distribution to land management/planning authorities, researchers & interested public. Pteropus poliocephalus Grey-headed Flying-fox Animal > Bats Medium
Improve knowledge of Grey-headed Flying-fox camp locations, targeting regional areas and seasons where information is notably incomplete, such as inland areas during spring and summer. Pteropus poliocephalus Grey-headed Flying-fox Animal > Bats Low
Protect roosting habitat critical to the survival of Grey-headed Flying-foxes, for example through management plans, local environmental plans and development assessments, and through volunteer conservation programs for privately owned land. Pteropus poliocephalus Grey-headed Flying-fox Animal > Bats Low
Determine characteristics of roosting habitat for Grey-headed Flying-foxes, exploring the roles of floristic composition, vegetation structure, microclimate and landscape features, and assess the status of camps. Pteropus poliocephalus Grey-headed Flying-fox Animal > Bats Medium
Enhance and sustain the vegetation of camps critical to the survival of Grey-headed Flying-foxes. Pteropus poliocephalus Grey-headed Flying-fox Animal > Bats Low
Develop and promote incentives to reduce killing of flying-foxes in commercial fruit crops. Pteropus poliocephalus Grey-headed Flying-fox Animal > Bats High
Identify the commercial fruit industries that are impacted by Grey-headed Flying-foxes, to provide an information base for use by the various stakeholders. Pteropus poliocephalus Grey-headed Flying-fox Animal > Bats High
Systematically document the levels of flying-fox damage to the horticulture industry within the range of the Grey-headed Flying-fox. Pteropus poliocephalus Grey-headed Flying-fox Animal > Bats High
Develop methods for rapid estimates of flying-fox damage on commercial crops, allowing the long-term monitoring of industry-wide levels and patterns of flying-fox damage. Pteropus poliocephalus Grey-headed Flying-fox Animal > Bats High
Develop and implement a grower-based program to monitor trends in damage to commercial fruit crops by flying-foxes, and use the results to monitor the performance of actions to reduce crop damage. Pteropus poliocephalus Grey-headed Flying-fox Animal > Bats High
Develop methods to monitor landscape scale nectar availability trends, to explain/potentially predict crop damage trends where crop protection is absent, & promote importance of foraging habitat productive in seasons critical to the horticulture industry. Pteropus poliocephalus Grey-headed Flying-fox Animal > Bats Low
Describe the species, age structure & demographics of flying-foxes killed in fruit crops to improve the understanding of the impact by assessing trends in the species, sex, age & reproductive status of animals killed on crops. Pteropus poliocephalus Grey-headed Flying-fox Animal > Bats Medium
Review & evaluate camp site management activities, summarising outcomes of past experiences at controversial camps. Noise impacts on neighbours of camps to be considered.
