Major conservation sub-tasks and associated scales
Sub tasks Spatial scale required Temporal scale required Locations
1. Captive breeding <1 ha Years
2. Isolated natural habit populations 400-600 ha Decades ‘Avocet’ – operational grazing property
3. Genetic interplay between populations Connections between the system parts Decades Queensland
4. Connected natural habit populations >500,000 ha Centuries Nowhere - unlikely
