Threatened Species Strategy 2021 - 2031
The Threatened Species Strategy 2021 – 2031 is the Australian Government’s way forward for prioritising action and investment, setting the direction for efforts to recover our threatened plants, animals and ecological communities over the next ten years.
The new 10-year Strategy builds on the momentum of the first Strategy launched in 2015. It sets a clear vision to drive practical on-ground action; identifies key action areas that are fundamental to the recovery of threatened species and ecological communities; and establishes principles for identifying priority threatened species and places to focus Australian Government effort.
The Threatened Species Strategy 2021-2031 will be underpinned by consecutive 5 year Action Plans. These Action Plans will identify priority species and places, concrete actions and practical, measurable targets to assess progress. The first Action Plan will be in place from 2021 to 2026.
