Project 6.2 These best practice guidelines describe a set of steps to assist with planning, management and evaluation for significant species in a cross-cultural setting. The guidelines were developed in Australia’s Arakwal National Park and adapted current IUCN endorsed species conservation planning and Green List evaluation frameworks. We demonstrate how to use the guidelines for an Indigenous-led project to co-manage the endangered Byron Bay orchid and its surrounding values.
