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
These species require no immediate investment because they are either naturally rare, have few known threats, or are more abundant than previously assumed when they were listed as threatened.
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
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 Office of Environment and Heritage
and other program partners, where feasible, cost-effective and beneficial to the threatened species.
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.
Undertake a review of the extent and distribution of the species as well as the type of tenures on which it occurs.
Investigate population dynamics and genetic diversity within and between populations.
Determine a suitable fire regime and incorporate this information into relevant plans of management on public and private lands.
Undertake weed control activities as appropriate using approved bush regeneration methods at priority sites on private and public land.
Prepare species profile and EIA guidelines as well as survey methodology to promote consistency of approach to assessments.
Seek to increase the level of legislative protection for the species on private land through appropriate land-use planning mechanisms and negotiating conservation agreements particularly large populations and those at the limits of distribution.
Maintain or rehabilitate areas which provide connectivity within and between populations.
Prepare and implement site-specific management plans for important populations on private and public land which address key threats to the species.
Undertake research on the reproductive biology of the species.
Determine the key threats to the species and develop recovery actions to address these.
Reassess the status of the species in the light of further surveys, monitoring and research on reproductive biology.
Monitor population numbers and habitat condition of of key populations.
