Australia’s national biodiversity strategy and action plan
Caring for nature is the shared responsibility of all Australians. Australia's Nature Hub is a national picture of the range of practices that are addressing the different biodiversity priorities across Australia. It demonstrates how the good work being done across Australia contributes to the Strategy’s goals and objectives, and more broadly to global biodiversity goals.
The Strategy is designed to reduce the major threats to the NSW marine estate and provides for the range of multiple uses and associated benefits that contribute to the wellbeing of the NSW community now and into the future.
The Sugarloaf Link Project seeks to control deer, foxes and weeds on private and public land - to enhance connected habitat for threatened plants and animals. This will benefit species such as Phascogales, Dunnarts and a range of threatened orchids.
The Northern Corroboree Frog is listed as endangered in the ACT, NSW and nationally. The decline of Corroboree Frogs has been attributed to disease caused by the introduced Amphibian Chytrid (pronounced 'Kit-rid') Fungus, which has also caused declines and in some cases extinctions of frogs worldwide.
Regional pest management strategies aim to minimise the adverse impacts of pests on biodiversity, protected areas and the community.
NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service work to identify the highest priority programs and focus on these. This ensures that we plan for actions that are achievable and can deliver measurable outcomes.
On 25 February 2019 the Australian Government announced the Climate Solutions Package, a $3.5 billion investment which maps out how Australia will achieve the final 328 million tonnes of estimated abatement needed to meet our 2030 Paris target.
The Australian Government is investing $100 million, over four years from 2019-20 to 2022-23, to help ensure our environment is protected for future generations through the Environment Restoration Fund.
