The Saving our Species program has projects in place to protect 8 iconic species in New South Wales.
These strategic projects align with the program's two main objectives – to maximise the number of threatened species secure in the wild in New South Wales for 100 years and to control the key threats facing our most vulnerable plants and animals.
Find out how we are helping our iconic species
One of Australia's most famous animals, this marsupial has large furry ears and a prominent black nose. With its long, sharp claws, adapted for climbing, the koala spends most of its time in trees.
This critically endangered tree was presumed to have become extinct millions of years ago until it was rediscovered in New South Wales during the 90s.
The brush-tailed rock-wallaby is a highly agile macropod, with a characteristic long and bushy tail.
Southern corroboree frog
Corroboree frogs are Australia's most iconic amphibian species, easily recognisable by their bold yellow and black stripes.
Through habitat loss and competition with introduced animals, the number of these small mammals has dramatically reduced over the last 100 years.
Bridled nail-tail wallaby
The bridled nail-tail wallaby is a medium-sized macropod which is presumed extinct in New South Wales.
