Each action is prioritised and has a specified timeframe and estimated cost over the 10-year period of the Plan. 5.7 Performance criteria 1. Demonstrate that there has not been any loss of known sites for listed threatened species, nor any loss of known sites for 90% of other priority species on a biennial basis. Specifically for the King Island Brown Thornbill and King Island Scrubtit, ensure and demonstrate no loss of known sites on a biennial basis. 2. By year 5 of the Plan, have information to be able to assess population health and/or range for all priority species. Specifically for the King Island Brown Thornbill, and King Island Scrubtit, by year 5 of the Plan, have information to be able to assess population health at all listed sites, have conducted surveys to detect any other subpopulations present on the island, and assess and implement time-critical actions required to ensure survival of specific subpopulations and of the two species including translocations and captive breeding programs. 3. From year 5 to 10 demonstrate that population health and/or range is maintained or improved for all priority species. Specifically for the King Island Brown Thornbill, and King Island Scrubtit, by year 10 of the Plan, have instigated all required actions to ensure survival of specific subpopulations of the two subspecies. 4. All priority vegetation communities have maintained their extent, on an ongoing yearly basis. 5. Demonstrate that connectivity has been increased and improved between sites that support high biodiversity values over the life of the project. 6. Demonstrate an improvement in the quality of vegetation remnants by year 5 and 10. Assess the quality of remnant vegetation utilising TASVEG Vegetation Condition Benchmarks, using a representative sample with a range of community types. 7. No new native species added to the TSP Act or EPBC Act threatened species lists, or declines in listed status due to declines on King Island. 8. Information, mapping, monitoring and research results are readily available on the King Island website ( ) and updated at least biannually. 9. Plan implementation recognises and utilises community, non-government and government knowledge in a collaborative fashion. 5.8 Biodiversity benefits Whilst many of the actions identified within the Plan target species ranked as a priority, it is anticipated that broader biodiversity benefits will be an outcome of the Plan’s implementation. Many of the species-related actions will provide positive outcomes for other species and biodiversity more generally, and mitigation of threats will reduce the pressure on a range of flora and fauna species to improve the overall health of King Island’s biodiversity. The presence of a Biodiversity Management Plan and its successful implementation will reduce knowledge gaps and may assist the community in improving the management of the island’s biodiversity.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
