1. NATIONAL BLUEPRINT FOR SAVING AUSTRALIA'S BIRDS
'The Action Plan for Australian Birds 2000' (written by Stephen T.
Garnett and Gabriel M. Crowley of Birds Australia).
This comprehensive new report, commissioned by Environment Australia
and funded from the Federal Government's Natural Heritage Trust, is
the latest in an ongoing Environment Australia series of Action Plans
for different taxonomic groups. The first Bird Action Plan was
published in 1992.
It reviews the conservation status of all 1,375 species and
subspecies of Australian birds, and recommends suitable conservation
actions to protect them. The Plan identifies 155 birds as nationally
The Action Plan aims to:
- provide a national overview of the conservation status of all birds
occurring in Australian territory against IUCN categories, identify
threats and recommend actions to minimise those threats.
- identify habitats or areas of particular importance for bird
conservation including key areas or habitats for threatened taxa
- identify processes that threaten birds, and identify areas where
these processes are a problem.
- recommend conservation priorities including research and management actions.
