Threatened species

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.

Declare Gambusia noxious in NSW Fisheries Management Act. Predation by Gambusia holbrooki Girard, 1859 (Plague Minnow or Mosquito Fish) Threat > Pest Animal High
Investigate impacts of gambusia on frogs, particularly those identified in the threat abatement plan as at risk from population level impacts from Gambusia predation / competition. Predation by Gambusia holbrooki Girard, 1859 (Plague Minnow or Mosquito Fish) Threat > Pest Animal Medium
Undertake control trials for chemicals that may work to reduce or remove Gambusia from waterbodies. Predation by Gambusia holbrooki Girard, 1859 (Plague Minnow or Mosquito Fish) Threat > Pest Animal Medium
Coordinate implementation of PAS actions for this KTP based on the approved Threat Abatement Plan. Predation by Gambusia holbrooki Girard, 1859 (Plague Minnow or Mosquito Fish) Threat > Pest Animal Medium
Prepare a statement of intent by 2007. Predation by Gambusia holbrooki Girard, 1859 (Plague Minnow or Mosquito Fish) Threat > Pest Animal Medium
Prepare awareness and education raising materials that aim to prevent human dispersal of Gambusia. Predation by Gambusia holbrooki Girard, 1859 (Plague Minnow or Mosquito Fish) Threat > Pest Animal Medium
Prepare environment assessment advice for Local Government regarding activities that may result in human induced dispersal of Gambusia. Predation by Gambusia holbrooki Girard, 1859 (Plague Minnow or Mosquito Fish) Threat > Pest Animal Medium
Survey sites of frog species that are at high risk of population level impacts from Gambusia predation e.g. Green and Golden Bell frog and Wallum froglet to assess efficacy for control. Predation by Gambusia holbrooki Girard, 1859 (Plague Minnow or Mosquito Fish) Threat > Pest Animal Medium
Undertake targeted control of Gambusia at key sites where control is assessed to be feasible. Predation by Gambusia holbrooki Girard, 1859 (Plague Minnow or Mosquito Fish) Threat > Pest Animal Medium
Assess opportunities for the creation of supplementary habitat for high priority frogs such as Green and Golden Bell frog and Wallum froglet at key sites. Predation by Gambusia holbrooki Girard, 1859 (Plague Minnow or Mosquito Fish) Threat > Pest Animal Low
Monitor response of frogs to removal of Gambusia at high priority sites (where control of Gambusia has been implemented). Predation by Gambusia holbrooki Girard, 1859 (Plague Minnow or Mosquito Fish) Threat > Pest Animal Medium
Participate in broad scale river health programs which will benefit the management of Gambusia from a whole of ecosystem perspective i.e. manage those aspects of river health that reduce habitat preferences of native frog species. Predation by Gambusia holbrooki Girard, 1859 (Plague Minnow or Mosquito Fish) Threat > Pest Animal Medium
Investigate factors limiting dispersal of gambusia which will assist our understanding of which habitats are /maybe at risk from occupation by Gambusia. Predation by Gambusia holbrooki Girard, 1859 (Plague Minnow or Mosquito Fish) Threat > Pest Animal Medium
