Project 6.2 Most threatened species ranges overlap with Indigenous lands. Many Indigenous people and groups already play an active role in the management of many threatened species but there is still a lot of opportunity to increase and formalise Indigenous involvement in threatened species management. This project will look at threatened species habitat and existing conservation activities on Indigenous land, and will identify new opportunities for Indigenous people to participate in protecting and recovering Australia’s threatened species. The project will also work with Indigenous partners to co-develop a cross-cultural approach to plan, deliver and monitor on-ground threatened species recovery activities.
