Landscape-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.
