The northern population of the eastern bristlebird (Dasyornis brachypterus) is Critically Endangered. The wild population stands at less than 40 individuals. Habitat management is helping to improve conditions; however, additional management responses are required. This plan outlines an emergency response for the next 10 years (2020-2030) to help restore wild populations through a strategy that combines in situ habitat management, captive breeding and reintroduction.
