Landscape-managed species

Landscape-managed species are threatened plants and animals that need broad landscape scale conservation projects.

Rosenberg's goanna (Varanus rosenbergi) is a vulnerable species in NSWLandscape-managed species are best recovered by addressing threats such as habitat loss or degradation within a landscape. This is because these species are often widely distributed, highly mobile or dispersed, or affected by landscape-scale threats.

The squirrel glider and Rosenberg’s goanna are two examples.

Ways of dealing with threats to landscape-managed species include:

  • replanting or weeding as part of broadscale vegetation and habitat management programs
  • controlling land clearing
  • sharing water to sustain floodplain ecosystems
  • managing coasts, estuaries and coastal wetlands
  • managing national parks and reserves.
