How are Saving our Species projects prioritised?

Prioritisation of work on individual species and management streams is based on the likelihood of success of a project and the total cost of implementing it.

Species that have a higher chance of surviving will be prioritised for projects.

Prioritisation of projects helps the NSW Government make the most cost-effective investment. Other organisations and individuals can also use this information to guide their investment into conserving threatened species.

Species in the site-managed, iconic and data-deficient species management streams have been prioritised for initial funding.

Projects that are developed for other management streams, threatened ecological communities and key threatening processes will be assessed and prioritised.
