Publication Date:

The Australian Network for Plant Conservation first established guidelines for the translocation of threatened plants for conservation purposes. This second edition puts more emphasis on evaluating whether translocation should go ahead, monitoring and evaluation, and involving local communities. The main points are brought together in useful case studies from across Australia. A new format enhances usability and highlights important information. This publication includes information on: definitions and objectives; deciding whether translocation is a viable option; the translocation process from project proposal, development, through to monitoring; community participation; and case studies.
