The main threats to the South Gippsland Plains Grassland ecological community and the actions required to address them are understood. Although there is no recovery plan or other overall mechanism addressing recovery across the ecological community, some of the key sites have management plans encompassing recovery requirements, and the Victorian Department of Environment and Primary Industries is undertaking and keeping record of actions at several sites. While current arrangements are not reversing decline at all sites, enhancing and better resourcing existing mechanisms is likely to be a more effective and efficient way to address recovery of the ecological community than developing a recovery plan. Taking into account the recovery and threat abatement priorities and actions specified in the conservation advice, a recovery plan for the ecological community is not required at this time.
