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 and maintain its conservation status under the BC Act. The SoS strategy also aims to engage local communities in the species' conservation and to encourage the NSW community to identify with it as a flagship for threatened species conservation.

Critical actions for this ecological community
The key threats to the viability of landscape-managed ecological communities are loss, fragmentation and degradation
of habitat, and widespread pervasive factors such as impacts of climate change. Many of these threats are
addressed by NSW planning, native vegetation, and biodiversity legislation, policy and programs including the
offsets program (BioBanking, NSW Biodiversity Offsets Policy for Major Projects), Biodiversity Certification,
management of environmental water and reservation under the National Parks and Wildlife Act 1974.
Threats to this ecological community are outlined
The actions listed in the action toolbox are supplementary to NSW legislation, policy and programs and can be used by stakeholders, where applicable to guide management at a site, regional or state scale.
|Conduct a combination of targeted physical and chemical weed control and bush regeneration activities on the site after establishing the weed management requirements based on weeds present and their coverage. ||Site
|Undertake ground-based shooting and other management actions if deemed appropriate, consistent with protocols and processes of the Northern Illawarra Deer Management Plan.||Site
|Conduct buffer and infill planting to reduce edge effects and to improve the edge to area ratio using species consistent with the Illawarra Subtropical Rainforest. Protect plantings from damage by deer browsing.||Site
|Assess the requirements for the installation/repairs of fencing to protect occurrences of Illawarra Subtropical Rainforest in the site from trampling and grazing by domestic stock. ||Site
|Provide educational support to landholders including descriptive information regarding the Illawarra Subtropical Rainforest, its environmental values and activities, and actions that can be done to protect and improve its habitat.||Site
|Conduct surveys for the Illawarra Subtropical Rainforest in the site to determine its extent and condition. Use research to inform management priorities.||Site
