This project will aim to improve the design and implementation of cost-effective monitoring for threatened species. An extensive review of past and current
approaches to threatened species monitoring will inform future monitoring programs. Case studies will be developed around monitoring approaches for
a wide range of threatened species and new technologies (such as drones) will be explored.

The TSR Hub has gathered monitoring experts, and managers who need and use monitoring information, from all over Australia to discuss the value of, and many challenges involved in, monitoring threatened biodiversity. This had led to a national assessment of the adequacy of threatened species monitoring in Australia, a framework to guide and assess monitoring programs and a new authoritative book.

The assessment has found that overall, over a third of Australia's threatened animals received no monitoring at all, and where monitoring does exist, it is often inadequate, putting many species at risk.
There are many strong and conflicting views about native forest logging in the Victorian Central Highlands, so where do policy makers begin? Two new videos look at an environmental economic accounting analysis for the region, including the value of different industries.
