Collaboration delivers bolder and braver projects
Successful threatened species recovery requires new knowledge, data and models to maximise the chance and efficiency of successful management.
One of the main roles of our hub is to bring this information together, synthesizing it in a range of ways. This includes proposing a credible and publicly available index for the state of our threatened birds to assembling guidelines for recovery teams.
In this month’s newsletter you’ll read about some of our multi-agency collaborative projects that aim to: keep myrtle rust out of Western Australia, reduce threats to malleefowl, share management lessons from island refuges, and identify common factors that drive success in recovery projects.
This collaborative research with management agencies sets our decision makers up for bolder, braver initiatives that tackle conservation decline. We have found that collaborative research delivers higher quality results faster and the engagement during the research process maximises the chance that our discoveries are implemented by those management agencies.
