About this template
Monitoring, evaluation and reporting is an important part of any recovery effort. Regular monitoring and assessment of the progress of a recovery program provides clarity on whether investments are improving the status of threatened species and ecological communities. It also enables adaptive management, so that we can adjust our efforts accordingly.
Recovery teams have an important leadership role in communicating the effectiveness of recovery programs. A national reporting framework has been established for recovery teams to report on their progress in achieving the objectives of a conservation plan. Consistent reporting across nationally registered recovery teams will progressively build a national snapshot of species conservation efforts over time. Annual progress reporting will allow teams to build a story on how the species is tracking which will feed into the review of conservation plans.
The reporting templates available for download on this page can be used by recovery teams to report against the actions listed within relevant conservation plans. This template can also be used to report on species or ecological community conditions and help structure the team’s reflection on current recovery efforts and coordination. Once submitted, progress reports are added to departmental records and are a collaborative resource during conservation plan review.
