Partnership species

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

Green turtle (Chelonia mydas)These species have less than 10% of their population in New South Wales.

Saving our Species aims to invest conservation resources where they are needed most, so the program prioritises the management of partnership species that:

  • have high-conservation value within New South Wales
  • are listed as threatened elsewhere in Australia.

The Framework for partnership species (PDF 2.5MB) sets out the partnership objectives and how species are allocated to this management stream.
