Australia's biodiversity conservation strategy 2010-2020: consultation draft

source: Dept. of the Environment, Water, Heritage and the Arts
"The new Australia's Biodiversity Conservation Strategy sets a national direction for biodiversity conservation over the next decade. The strategy outlines the activities that must begin straight away and those that are needed to effect longer-term change with a minimum 10-year outlook. All actions sit within a list of six ‘priorities for change’. These priorities—building ecosystem resilience, mainstreaming biodiversity, knowledge for all, getting results, involving Indigenous peoples and measuring success—reflect the essential changes that we must make urgently to achieve the strategy’s vision."
