This species has been assigned to the Landscape species management stream under the Saving our Species (SoS) program.
Justification for allocation to this management stream
The primary threats to this species occur at the landscape scale; climate change, sea level rise, eutrophication and changes to soil and water chemistry.
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.
This action statement aims to address key knowledge gaps for this species, which once resolved, can inform effective management of this species.
This action statement aims to ensure the security of this species in the long-term.
This action statement aims to ensure that the species is secure in the wild in NSW and that its NSW geographic range is extended or maintained.
This action statement aims to secure critical populations of this species in NSW in the long-term.
This action statement aims to secure this population in the long-term.
This action statement aims to maximise the extent of occurrence and condition of the ecological community across NSW.
Species sightings and management sites across NSW
The map below displays the species’ distribution in NSW, based upon the species’ geographic range, habitat distribution or area of occupancy (to as high a resolution as available data allow, using a range of data sources).
Information about the species’ habitat and ecology is available here.
The map may also display one or more management sites where management of important populations is underway. More information is available in the tables below.
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.
The species occurs in the following IBRA (Interim Biogeographic Regionalisation for Australia) regions in NSW:
|NSW North Coast
|South Eastern Queensland
Proportion of the species' distribution on reserve
55% of the species' distribution occurs on reserve (within NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service estate).
Critical actions for this species
The key threats to the viability of landscape-managed species are loss, fragmentation and degradation of habitat, and widespread pervasive factors such as impacts of climate change and disease. 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 species are outlined here.
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.
|Liaise with the Rural Fire Service to raise awareness of the fire sensitivity of wallum habitat. Negotiate to ensure that areas of wallum, particularly where the species is known to occur, are not burnt too frequently or intensely. Known populations should be monitored following any fire event to investigate impacts.||Area
|Investigate the impacts of pest species - gambusia and cane toads - on the health and persistence of known populations. If significant impacts are detected, implement targeted control to remove the pest species.||Site
|Liaise with relevant land managers (e.g. local government) of coastal wetlands and swamps to ensure that hydrology remains intact in areas of known key habitat. Negotiate to prevent draining of important swamps where it can be avoided, or altering the amount of water available to ephemeral swamps.||Site
|Trial types of roadside exclusion fencing. Work with relevant authorities (e.g. local government, Roads and Maritime Services) to implement mitigation measures such as fencing, signage, targeted speed restrictions or road crossings at key locations to minimise road mortality.||Area
|Encourage landholders to enter agreements, particularly in-perpetuity covenants or stewardship agreements, that promote the protection and sensitive management of wallum/wetland habitat, including maintaining hydrology and preventing eutrophication and pollution.||Site
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.
