Assets of Intergenerational Significance Conservation Action Plans

Public comment on the draft Conservation Action Plans for Assets of Intergenerational Significance has now closed.

This year, on Threatened Species Day in September, a first tranche of 221 Asset of Intergenerational Significance (AIS) sites were declared across 110 national parks, protecting the key habitat for:

  • 66 threatened plant species, including the previously declared Wollemi pine
  • 27 threatened animal species, including 13 mammals, four birds, seven frogs and three reptiles.

An AIS can be any area of exceptional value – natural or cultural – that warrants special protection including dedicated management measures.

For each AIS, NPWS has a statutory obligation to prepare and implement a concise conservation action plan (CAP) which sets out:

  • key risks to the declared area of habitat for the threatened species
  • priority actions to reduce risks to this important habitat – such as dedicated feral animal control or fire management, or the establishment of insurance populations
  • actions to measure and report on the health/population of the threatened species (metrics).
