Recovery plan for five species of rock wallabies

Western Australian Department of Parks and Wildlife, 2013


This recovery plan addresses the conservation requirements of five species of rock wallabies that occur in the NT, SA and WA. Within these five species are a number of recognised subspecies and genetic races. The plan summarises available information relevant to the future conservation of these species and outlines a range of actions to improve their conservation status.

The overall objective of the recovery program is to ensure the survival of populations and maintain or, where applicable, improve the conservation status (based on IUCN criteria (IUCN 1994)) of the taxa described in this plan through increased knowledge and understanding, the protection of habitat and abatement of threats, and involving the community in recovery actions.
