Recovery plans

Recovery plans contain details about the conservation of certain threatened species and are used to manage their recovery.

The Biodiversity Conservation Program and associated Saving our Species strategies have replaced the need for recovery plans.

Recovery plans helped us safeguard the future survival of threatened species.

Recovery plans outline:

  • a specific species' life history, distribution and habitat
  • threats to a species
  • actions that can be taken to recover a species including the cost, time frame and agency responsible for carrying out these actions.
