Our Australian plants, animals and landscapes are unique and distinct. They are core to our identity, culturally significant to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, important to the health of our environment and a strong contributor to our economy.
The Australian Government is committed to safeguarding our biodiversity and supporting the recovery of our threatened species.
About the Threatened Species Strategy
The Threatened Species Strategy is the Australian Government’s way forward for prioritising action and investment, setting the direction for efforts to recover our threatened plants, animals and ecological communities from 2021 to 2031.
The 2021-2031 Strategy builds on the momentum of the first Strategy launched in 2015. It sets a clear vision to drive practical on-ground action; identifies key action areas that are fundamental to the recovery of threatened species and ecological communities; and establishes principles for identifying priority threatened species and places to focus Australian Government effort.
Released on 21 May 2021, the 2021-2031 Strategy was prepared in consultation with the Australian community.
