12 Roles/Interests of Indigenous People
Indigenous communities with an interest in the actions proposed in this recovery plan have not yet been identified. Implementation of recovery actions under this plan will include consideration of the role and interests of indigenous communities in the region.
The conservation and study of I. trypherus will benefit other species that share the same habitat. It will also help to conserve areas of Illawarra Subtropical Rainforest, an endangered ecological community listed on Schedule 1 of the TSC Act.
The raised awareness of I. trypherus created during the implementation of this recovery plan will raise the profile of all threatened species amongst the general community. This in turn will lead to greater opportunities for the conservation of threatened species and increased protection of biodiversity.
This recovery plan was prepared by Martin Bremner of the DEC Threatened Species Unit, Metropolitan Region, with the advice and assistance of the Illawarra Regional Threatened Flora Recovery Team.
This recovery plan is to be formally reviewed and updated by the DEC, in conjunction with the recovery team, five years from the date of its publication.
