7 Objectives and Performance Criteria




7.1 Objectives


The long-term objective of this Plan is to improve the conservation status of all threatened and priority species and ecological communities in the Fitzgerald Biosphere to ensure their long-term preservation, and ensure that all other biodiversity in the region is also conserved.
The specific objectives for the 10 year timeframe of this Plan are to:


  1. Maintain or increase population size and range of threatened and priority species and ecological communities in situ in the Fitzgerald Biosphere through the abatement of threatening processes following an adaptive management framework.




  1. Maintain or improve the habitat for threatened and priority species and ecological communities within the Fitzgerald Biosphere.




  1. Ensure efficient use of available resources for recovery action implementation and data management within the Fitzgerald Biosphere across institutions and land tenures.




  1. Improve community appreciation and respect for the biodiversity assets and associated threatening processes in the Fitzgerald Biosphere, and foster participation in activities that protect threatened species and ecological communities.




  1. Increase the number, size and/or range of threatened species populations through the use of ex-situ programs, if required.




  1. Monitor and evaluate population trends of threatened species and ecological communities in the Fitzgerald Biosphere and their responses to threatening processes, and use this information to inform adaptive management through the application of conservation action planning principles.




  1. Increase knowledge of the biodiversity and ecosystem processes of the Fitzgerald Biosphere, with emphasis on the threatened and priority species and ecological communities in an adaptive management framework.
