Partnership species

Partnership species are threatened species found mainly in other states and territories. We partner with others to protect them.

Brolga (Grus rubicunda) is a partnership managed species with other Australian states and territoriesMore than 150 species are included in the partnership category. These species have less than 10% of their population in New South Wales.

The future safety of these species depends on populations outside New South Wales. Species in this category may be better managed by, or with, other federal, state or territory governments.

Examples include the brolga and yellow-footed rock wallaby.

Conservation projects will be developed for partnership species that:

  • are listed nationally as threatened under the Commonwealth Environmental Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999
  • have key populations in New South Wales
  • have important breeding sites in New South Wales
  • have a declining population.
