The characteristics and success of vertebrate translocations within Australia 2009
Short, J. (2010) The characteristics and success of vertebrate translocations within Australia 2009. Australian Government Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry, Canberra, Australia.
This project aims to elucidate the underpinning strategies used for the successful translocation of threatened native vertebrates.
This report compiles 380 translocations of 102 species. Of these, 195 translocations (51% of total translocations) are of 50 threatened species (roughly half of all species translocated). This somewhat underestimates the proportion of translocations conducted on threatened species as the two species (Brush-tailed Bettong and Tammar Wallaby) that have the most translocations were de-listed as threatened species in the late 1990s, in part, because of the success of translocations. For the purposes of these calculations, they are regarded as non-listed species.
