Practical adaptive management to improve threatened species conservation programs

Project Leaders: David Lindenmayer, Sarah Legge


What makes effective adaptive management? And what are the key unifying attributes of successful and unsuccessful adaptive management? This project will develop case studies to support adaptive management and conservation, with an initial focus on the critically endangered Leadbeater’s Possum and the Malleefowl. A key part of this work will be to help the Department of Environment deliver on its commitments in the emergency actions component of the Threatened Species Strategy.
