The species we love are rapidly being lost, but reintroductions can help them survive as well as recover. Yet, reintroduction programs must consider a wide range of factors to be successful. In South Australia, some threatened aquatic species have benefited from small-scale reintroductions but expanded effort is necessary. This Fellowship aims to develop a world leading reintroduction strategy by:

  • Engaging and sharing with experts,
  • Participating in conferences and training, and
  • Visiting reintroduction examples.

The reintroduction strategy will provide information necessary to re-establish self-sustaining populations to help ensure the survival of threatened South Australian aquatic species.
