The Biodiversity Conservation Program is delivered through Saving our Species (SoS), implementing the Program's strategies through its conservation actions.
The Biodiversity Conservation Program replaces the Priorities Action Statement (PAS) as part of the NSW Biodiversity Conservation Act 2016, effective 25 August 2017.
The Biodiversity Conservation Program consists of:
- Strategies to achieve the objectives of the program in relation to each threatened species and threatened ecological community.
- The framework to guide the setting of priorities for implementing the strategies.
- A process for monitoring and reporting on the overall outcomes and effectiveness of the Program.
The SoS Database provides a public register of strategies included in the Biodiversity Conservation Program.
Strategies to minimise the impacts of key threatening processes may, but are not required to be, included in the Program.
Strategies are developed within two years for each newly-listed species or ecologically protected community within the Act.
