National recovery plan for Moore's Burr-daisy (Calotis moorei)
NSW Department of Environment, Climate Change and Water
This is the final NSW and Commonwealth Recovery Plan for Calotis moorei. The plan considers the conservation requirements across the known range, identifies actions that should ensure long term viability and the agencies responsible for these actions.
Calotis moorei is listed on Schedule 1 (endangered) of the NSW Threatened Species Conservation Act 1995 (TSC Act), and on Part 1 (endangered) of the Commonwealth Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 (EPBC).
Calotis moorei is a small multibranched daisy known from a property west of Louth, NSW, and three populations near Menindee, NSW. Surveys have not been conducted more widely and Calotis moorei may occur at other locations.
Proposed recovery actions are:
- A survey of potential habitat
- Genetic analysis to resolve the taxonomy
- Reassessment of the conservation status
- Monitoring of population status
- Investigation of grazing impacts if required
- Seed storage if required
This recovery plan will be implemented over a 5 year period. Actions are estimated to cost $85,000.
