More than 370 EPBC-listed threatened species can be found in Australian cities and towns. Yet we understand little about how to promote the management and recovery of threatened species in urban areas. This project will examine the degree to which urban environments can contribute to the recovery of threatened species, finding unique opportunities for conservation gains and new ways of connecting people with conservation.
