The New South Wales Government established a new environment agency on 24 September 2003, the Department of Environment and Conservation (NSW), which incorporates the New South Wales National Parks and Wildlife Service. Responsibility for the preparation of Recovery Plans now rests with this new department.
This document constitutes the formal New South Wales State Recovery Plan for Davidsonia jerseyana Bailey (Davidson's Plum) and considers the conservation requirements of the species across its known range. It identifies the actions to be taken to ensure the long-term viability of the species in nature and the parties who will undertake these actions.
The Davidson's Plum is included as Endangered on the NSW Threatened Species Conservation Act 1995, and Endangered on the Commonwealth Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999. The Davidson's Plum is a slender tree to 10 m high, with few branches or with several stems from the base, and is restricted to the Tweed and Brunswick River catchments of the north coast of NSW.
The future recovery actions detailed in this Recovery Plan include: (i) plan coordination, (ii) surveys, (iii) research, (iv) identification of cultural significance, (v) habitat management and protection, and (vi) the development of a contingency plan.
It is intended that this Recovery Plan will be implemented over a five year period. Actions will be undertaken by the Department of Environment and Conservation (NSW).
