    Abstract

    The need for innovation in conservationmanagement in Australia has never been greater: the prevailing ‘business model’ for conservation is failing. Australia has the worst rate of mammal extinctions in the modern world and many of our flora and fauna species are endangered. Broad-scale indicators of the condition of our biodiversity show that it continues to decline through the combined actions of habitat loss and modification, changes in fire patterns, and the introduction of feral animals and weeds (Australian State of theEnvironment 2011 Committee 2011). We need innovation to drive the development of new strategies if we wish to prevent further loss of biodiversity.
