Conservation Objective 4

Improve protection of threatened species 

  • For the first time, a set of 148 threatened flora species and 88 priority fauna species has been identified to target for conservation on private land
  • Of the priority species, nearly one-third are listed as nationally threatened and more than two-thirds are listed as threatened under Victoria’s Flora and Fauna Guarantee Act 1988
  • A high proportion of priority species occur in wetland, grassland and woodland habitats
  • A substantial proportion occur outside of the focal landscapes, and
  • Nearly 60% of the priority threatened species have been recorded to date from Trust for Nature covenants and properties.
