This species has been assigned to the Landscape species
management stream under the Saving our Species (SoS)
Justification for allocation to this management stream
This species is distributed across relatively large areas and is subject to threatening processes that generally act at the landscape scale (e.g. habitat loss or degradation) rather than at distinct, defineable locations.
Status in NSW:
|NSW Final determination:
||26 October 2001
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.
This SoS strategy aims to secure this population in the long-term and maintain its conservation status under the BC Act
This SoS strategy aims to ensure the security of this species in the long-term and maintain its conservation status under the BC Act
This SoS strategy aims to ensure that the species is secure in the wild in NSW and that its NSW geographic range is extended or maintained and maintain its conservation status under the BC Act
This SoS strategy aims to secure critical populations of this species in NSW in the long-term and maintain its conservation status under the BC Act
The SoS strategy aims to secure this population in the long-term.
The SoS strategy aims to maximise the viability of the ecological community and maintain its conservation status under the BC Act
The SoS strategy aims to minimise current and future impacts of the key threatening process on priority biodiversity values, including threatened species and ecological integrity. This objective aligns with the BC Act
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 South Western Slopes
|South Eastern Highlands
Proportion of the species' distribution on reserve
3% 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.
|Measure the abundance and impact of noisy miners on species populations and habitat, and implement appropriate management actions with demonstrated effectiveness to reduce the impacts of noisy miners if/where required. The preferred method for managing aggressive honeyeater impacts is through habitat modification (e.g. reduce the amount of edge and establish a structurally complex understorey).|| Site, Area
|Undertake revegetation, using a diverse mix of locally appropriate native species, focussing on expanding and connecting areas of existing habitat. Where appropriate, establish new habitat patches in areas where native vegetation cover is lacking. Target the productive lower parts of the landscape, especially areas adjacent to streams (which may provide important drought refuges). To maximise these benefits, riparian plantings should be at least 50m wide.|| Site
|Conduct targeted research into identifying different practical methods for restoring the structure and function of the ground layer in degraded habitat, including soil biota and its functionality.|| Site
|Encourage the retention of a floristically and structurally diverse and spatially variable understorey in patches of woodland. Raise public awareness of the damage caused to wildlife habitat by slashing/underscrubbing, over-grazing, and frequent fuel reduction burns. Target in-perpetuity covenants or stewardship agreements to landholders with high quality remnant woodland habitat.|| State
|Encourage the retention of woody ground debris. Raise public awareness of the impact of firewood collection, cleaning up, and fuel reduction burns on this critical resource. Promote the retention of large old trees that have the potential to contribute woody ground debris via the shedding of limbs.|| Site
|Raise awareness among landholders in a local area known to have important habitat for the species, to engage them in proactive management and monitoring of the species' population on their land.|| Area, State
|Ensure populations remain connected by avoiding gaps greater than 100m between habitat patches and along linear remnants. Eliminate gaps through revegetation (either corridors or stepping stone plantings), focusing on important movement pathways.|| Site, Area
|Target removal of weeds significantly compromising habitat values (e.g. invasive perennial grasses) and restore native vegetation. Care should be taken to avoid widespread removal of beneficial exotic woody vegetation without replacement and avoid non-target impacts of herbicides.|| Site
How will this species be managed?
