Read more about Saving our Species conservation program

One of NSW National Parks’ most innovative programs, Saving our Species (SoS) sets a clear management framework to prioritise strategies for species.

As part of the conservation program, threatened species and ecological communities are assigned to 1 of 9 management streams depending on distribution, ecology, security, and what we know about them. The 9 management streams are: site-managed species, iconic species, data-deficient species, landscape-managed species, partnership species, keep watch species, threatened ecological communities, threatened populations and key threatening processes.

SoS invites participation from the NSW community and businesses, including research organisations, schools, landholders, government agencies, local conservation groups and more.
