The Regional Catchment Strategy for the Port Phillip & Western Port region
Method (Native Animals)

This strategy assesses:

  • the diversity of native animal species across the region
  • the health of populations of selected indicator species.

When considered together, these are expected to indicate the condition and resilience of native animal species.

These two methods have been used to determine the current condition of native animal species (Condition) and targets for the future (Targets).   Lead organisations are committed to achieving these targets (Leadership) and arrangements are in place to monitor and report on progress and success (Monitoring and reporting).
