In a Recovery Plan, a range of operational activities, or actions, will often be identified as necessary to help improve the conservation status of a threatened plant, species or ecological community. These can include:

  • improve knowledge of the species (eg distribution) and determine habitat requirements
  • identify and quantify threatening processes
  • reduce the risk of catastrophic events - such as fire - having an impact on populations
  • reduce the risk of population size being limited by predation or grazing
  • improve community awareness and involvement
  • avoid human impact such as vehicle damage, trampling, weed spraying and rubbish dumping
  • improve habitat quality, for example by:
    - controlling livestock
    - controlling weeds
    - fencing remnant vegetation
    - revegetating to increase habitat and restore habitat links
    - prescribed burning to enhance germination and seedling establishment, and provide habitats of different age class and structure after fire
  • move threatened plants or animals if appropriate (eg boost the size of a population or reintroduce a species to an area that it once inhabited)
  • monitor populations/habitat and evaluate the success of the actions.
