Current threatened species projects

The department is involved in numerous research, conservation management and habitat restoration projects which contribute to the well being of threatened species.

Here you will find some information on some of the programs that the department is running or is contributing to. Other organisations such as local councils, local land services, universities, fishing groups, landholders and conservation groups are also critical to the delivery of some of these programs.

Click on each threatened species below to get more information on current projects for that species.

If you are involved in threatened species management or research, or have an idea of a local project that you would like to tell the department about, we would like to hear from you! Please send us an email to
