About the plan
This recovery plan identifies threats and makes conservation recommendations for Chingia australis, a terrestrial arborescent fern endemic to the Wet Tropics region of northern Queensland.
The primary objective of this recovery plan is to arrest the decline of C. australis in the wild and to maintain viable 'in situ' populations. The specific objectives of this plan aim to protect C. australis populations from human interference, increase the size and number of populations, broaden the knowledge base of the species ecology and biology and increase public awareness about the species.
