The overall objective of recovery is to minimise the probability of extinction of the twenty-five threatened orchid taxa in the wild and to increase the probability of each population of each taxon becoming self-sustaining in the long term.
Within the life span of this Recovery Plan (2003-2007), the specific objectives of recovery for the twenty-five threatened taxa are to:
- Acquire accurate information for conservation status assessments.
- Identify key biological functions.
- Identify important, common and potential habitat.
- Ensure that all existing populations and their habitat are protected and managed appropriately.
- Increase the size of populations in the wild.
- Determine the growth rates and viability of populations.
- Establish populations in cultivation.
- Establish cultivated plants in the wild.
- Build a network of government and non-government organisations and individuals.
- Co-operate in bioregional policy implementation and manage recovery plan implementation.
