The new Threatened Species Strategy launched 21st May 2021 sets the Australian Government’s forward plan for action to protect and recover Australia’s threatened plants, animals and ecological communities, and includes:
- a 10- year vision ‘Australia’s threatened species are valued, protected and on the path to recovery’
- two high level objectives to improve the trajectory of priority threatened species and improve the condition of priority places by 2031
- six prioritisation principles to select priority species and places, based on risk of extinction, multiple benefits, feasibility and effectiveness, importance to people, uniqueness and representativeness
- and eight key action areas, including both on-ground and supporting actions, that are fundamental to the recovery of threatened species and where the Australian Government can make a difference.
