Targets are the most important part of this Regional Catchment Strategy. They:
The targets below describe the diversity and population health sought for native animals.
The aim of the targets below is to halt the regional decline and local extinction of native animal species. To monitor and report native animal diversity, the region has been divided into seven sub-regions. Each has its own target for five animal taxa; fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds and mammals.
The aim of the targets below is to stabilise or improve the population health of selected Indicator Species as a measurable way to conserve a wider range of native species sharing common habitats and threats.
The health of Swamp Skink populations to be stable or improving by 2030.
Native animal condition has been assessed (Method & Condition) as the basis for these targets. Targets and leadership arrangements are determined in consultation with relevant departments, agencies and delegated land managers. Lead organisations are committed to achieving these targets (Leadership) and arrangements are in place to monitor and report on progress and success (Monitoring & Reporting).
