The Threatened Species Recovery Hub’s six-year research program was completed in 2021. For more information see our about page.
The project seeks to (i) develop a justified listing of those invertebrate species most affected by the 2019–20 Australian wildfires in southern and eastern Australia, and whose recovery is most needing management support; and (ii) identify the post-fire threats and management priorities for those species. The project may also help develop monitoring guidelines and provide support for the development of submissions for threatened species listings for priority invertebrate species. It extends from an initial priority listing of fire-affected invertebrates first developed for the Wildlife and Threatened Species Bushfire Recovery Expert Panel, and will build upon and consolidate the extensive collaboration with experts and state agencies developed during that project.
