Project: 4.1

Translocation, reintroduction and conservation fencing for threatened fauna

Project Leaders: Nicola Mitchell, Sarah Legge

Whether moving species into fenced areas, intensively managed habitats or outside its previous habitat - translocating threatened species presents a number of challenges. This project will research the most feasible and cost-effective translocation strategies to boost the size and long-term viability of wild populations. This will include improved planning for, and implementation of, translocations of mammals, birds, reptiles and frogs.
