This project will identify the Australian animal species at most acute risk of extinction, and identify priority management actions to prevent the extinctions. Initially this has involved mammals and birds, but the methodology is also being applied for other animal species groups where sufficient information is available. A second stage will then involve integration and prioritisation across all taxonomic groups. The project will also be by hosting workshops that will identify those with a share of responsibility for the recovery process for the most threatened birds and mammals, funding models and timetables for action.
