Priority actions by type of threatened species

The Department of Environment and Conservation has prepared a Priorities Action Statement (PAS) to promote the recovery of threatened species and the abatement of key threatening processes in New South Wales.

The Priorities Action Statement identifies a number of broad strategies to help threatened plants and animals recover in New South Wales. Each of these strategies have more specific priority actions within them.

Select an item from the list below to see priority actions for all species of that type.

Undertake fox control in priority Long-nosed Potoroo sites as per Fox TAP. Potorous tridactylus Long-nosed Potoroo Animal > Marsupials Low
Increase habitat via revegetation work and/or establishing corridors to link multiple patches of suitable habitat to expand the effective area of habitat. Potorous tridactylus Long-nosed Potoroo Animal > Marsupials Low
Prevent the spread of Phytophthora sp. Potorous tridactylus Long-nosed Potoroo Animal > Marsupials Low
Control weeds, particularly those that affect the understorey layer, in Long-nosed Potoroo habitat. Potorous tridactylus Long-nosed Potoroo Animal > Marsupials Low
Using survey methods such as hair-tubing, trapping, scat analysis and the abundance of diggings, estimate the population sizes and relative densities of populations. Potorous tridactylus Long-nosed Potoroo Animal > Marsupials Medium
Investigate the genetic differences of Long-nosed Potoroo populations across the species' range. Potorous tridactylus Long-nosed Potoroo Animal > Marsupials Low
Determine the need for a captive breeding-reintroduction program. Potorous tridactylus Long-nosed Potoroo Animal > Marsupials Low
Investigate the diet preference of Long-nosed Potoroos for different fungi species, particularly Mesophellia sp. versus soft-bodied species. Potorous tridactylus Long-nosed Potoroo Animal > Marsupials Low
Encourage continued research into the effects of disturbance on hypogeal fungi species including the effects of fertiliser use and/or effluent release upstream. Potorous tridactylus Long-nosed Potoroo Animal > Marsupials Low
Explore the effects of predation on populations, particularly on dispersing individuals and after fire/logging. Potorous tridactylus Long-nosed Potoroo Animal > Marsupials Medium
Assist DSE (Vic) with the completion of the national recovery plan. Potorous tridactylus Long-nosed Potoroo Animal > Marsupials Low
Investigate the response of Long-nosed Potoroo populations to predator control to gain a better understanding of the level of predator control required (for each location) for the short- and long-term management of the species. Potorous tridactylus Long-nosed Potoroo Animal > Marsupials Low
Exclude forestry activities from refuge areas used in times of stress e.g. fires and drought. Potorous tridactylus Long-nosed Potoroo Animal > Marsupials High
Minimise damage to lower stratum vegetation and litter layer during forestry operations. For example, minimise clearing pre-logging, reduce construction of roads and tracks, and restrict heavy vehicles to such roads. Potorous tridactylus Long-nosed Potoroo Animal > Marsupials Medium
Undertake control burn using a mosaic pattern to ensure adequate vegetation cover. Potorous tridactylus Long-nosed Potoroo Animal > Marsupials Low
Seek formal protection of all remaining areas of known habitat under voluntary conservation agreements, joint management agreements or as critical habitat. Potorous tridactylus Long-nosed Potoroo Animal > Marsupials Low
Prohibit livestock from patches of habitat on public land to reduce the impact of livestock grazing, trampling and the spread of weeds. Potorous tridactylus Long-nosed Potoroo Animal > Marsupials Medium
Encourage private landholders to exclude livestock from key habitat to reduce the impact of grazing, trampling and the spread of weeds. Potorous tridactylus Long-nosed Potoroo Animal > Marsupials Medium
Encourage private landholders to protect known and potential Long-nosed Potoroo habitat from inappropriate fire regimes. Potorous tridactylus Long-nosed Potoroo Animal > Marsupials Medium
