Migratory Species Action Plan

27 internationally-listed migratory birds are known to visit the ACT, some coming from as far as Japan, China and Siberia. We have an international responsibility to maintain their preferred habitat in the ACT and contribute to international research on these birds.

The ACT Government has prepared an ACT Action Plan for Listed Migratory Species. The plan aims to protect, restore and enhance important wetland, wildlife corridors and breeding habitat in the ACT. It will manage identified threats to important sites and habitat and improve our knowledge about the occurrence and management of listed migratory species.
