This species has been assigned to the Keep-watch species management stream under the Saving our Species (SoS) program.
Justification for allocation to this management stream
Relatively large populations of this species occur within reserves (e.g. Washpool and Dorrigo National Parks) where current management is sufficient to ensure their long term security.
Status in NSW:
The SoS strategy aims to secure the species in the wild for 100 years and maintain its conservation status under the BC Act
The SoS strategy aims to secure the species in the wild in NSW for 100 years, engage local communities in its conservation, and encourage the NSW community to identify with it as a flagship for threatened species conservation.

Your search returned one or more sites that are restricted due to the sensitive nature of either the species or the site. Individuals involved in management on these sites can access detailed information via the database.
How will this species be managed?
Key management sites for this threatened species are being identified by the NSW Government
and other program partners, where feasible, cost-effective and beneficial management actions can be undertaken.
Currently, no management sites have been identified for this threatened species.
This species is likely to be secure in NSW for the long term without targeted management, assuming adequate ongoing management of habitat within the public reserve system. This species is therefore a lower priority for investment than other, more threatened species that have urgent management requirements. Any change in the status of this species (e.g. decline in abundance or emergence of a significant threat) will trigger a shift to the Site-managed stream and the development of a conservation project, which will be prioritised for implementation.
A number of state-wide conservation actions have also been identified for this threatened species, which can be viewed by clicking the link below.
Monitor known populations to identify trends in population numbers.
Survey prior to road and track maintenance in potential habitat of the species, assess need to protect trackside habitat.
Ensure species is considered in Plans of Management, Fire Management Strategies, planning and operations.
