This report covers work to date on the National Environmental Science Program Threatened Species Recovery Hub project 3.3.2 Adaptive management for threatened mammals in Victorian Central Highlands. The primary objectives of this project are to determine spatial patterns in how the Critically Endangered Leadbeater’s Possum (Gymnobelideus leadbeateri) is using different kinds of disturbed and regenerating forest. This report outlines the project design, the steps taken to achieve the project objectives, and the challenges faced to date. The report concludes by outlining the further work required to meet the project objectives.
