2017 is a year for innovation. Only a few months in, we have already seen new and innovative solutions investigated for feral cat control using ‘trojan baits’, exciting citizen-science opportunities with the release of the night parrot call, and successes in engaging the private sector in conservation. As I mentioned in the summer issue of Science for Saving Species, we were able to meet the majority of the first year targets of the Threatened Species Strategy. And now we are focused on new and innovative partnerships to help achieve the ambitious Year 3 and Year 5 targets.
