Priority Threat Management for Pilbara Species of Conservation Significance
Carwardine, Josie, Nicol, Sam, Van Leeuwen, Stephen, Walters, Belinda, Firn, Jennifer, Reeson, Andrew, Martin, Tara G., & Chades, Iadine (2014) Priority Threat Management for Pilbara Species of Conservation Significance. CSIRO, Brisbane.
This project provides a costed and appraised set of management strategies for mitigating threats to species of conservation significance in the Pilbara IBRA bioregion of Western Australia (hereafter 'the Pilbara'). Conservation significant species are either listed under federal and state legislation, international agreements or considered likely to be threatened in the next 20 years.
Here we report on the 17 technically and socially feasible management strategies, which were drawn from the collective experience and knowledge of 49 experts and stakeholders in the ecology and management of the Pilbara region. We determine the relative ecological cost-effectiveness of each strategy, calculated as the expected benefit of management to the persistence of 53 key threatened native fauna and flora species, divided by the expected cost of management. Finally we provide decision support to assist prioritisation of the strategies on the basis of ecological cost-effectiveness.
