Monitoring is integral to achieving the recovery of threatened species. Monitoring reveals information about population status and trends, with such information often crucial for the recognition of a species as threatened. When well-designed, monitoring can identify causes of decline, reveal ecological information critical for management, measure management effectiveness, provide opportunities for public engagement and report on conservation investment to decision-makers and the public.
