Current Research

Australia has a national biodiversity strategy which prioritises the prevention of habitat loss, the minimisation of degradation and fragmentation, the control of invasive species, and the promotion of natural resource management. However, a viable resourcing plan does not exist to convert strategic objectives to actualities. A funding plan is required for the carrying out the work that is proposed in many conservation strategy documents. The obvious question is whether without a viable resourcing plan are Australia’s existing biodiversity conservation strategies unattainable?
