A lot of the news about threatened species conservation can be about what is not working, species on the brink. This is inevitable as these are our most imperilled species; however, it is important not to let these stories make us feel that threatened species conservation is hopeless. The recovery of Australian threatened species can be accomplished and where we achieve success we should celebrate and learn from these examples. These stories reinforce the optimism and hope that drive successful conservation interventions, and can persuade those supporting threatened species conservation that their investment of time and money is worthwhile.
