The NSW Department of Environment and Climate Change (DECC) is preparing a Biodiversity Management Plan for the Northern Rivers Region of north-east NSW, Australia. The Northern Rivers region covers over 50,000 square km of north-east NSW extending from just south of Port Macquarie north to the Queensland border and inland to the tablelands as far as Armidale. The area features a number of major population centres along the coast and a range of public lands including 22 % national park and 12% state forest and the majority 59% private lands. The plan aims to protect and manage all threatened species, populations and communities found in the Northern Rivers region.

As part of the planning process an analysis of all threats affecting biodiversity in the region has been completed. These stress impact at different scales from widespread threats to those that are localised or specific to individual areas. This process allows recovery actions to be better targeted towards conserving threatened biodiversity at various scales and localities.

Additionally, a large set of spatial data has been compiled and assessed including analysis of vegetation communities and their rarity and representation.

Other spatial information includes vegetation condition, threats, geology, growth stage, corridors, land use and land capability and tenure. The plan is funded by the Australian Governments Natural Heritage Trust with additional contributions from DECC. This video includes landholder interviews about biodiversity projects on their land. It also provides information about the plan and how people can get involved in biodiversity recovery planning.
