    Effective and efficient management of recovery programs is important, especially in Australia due to an extraordinary high rate of fauna extinction. There is a lack of integration of project management tools and processes for the organisation and the delivery of recovery interventions in Australia.

The paper also presents how Australian recovery interventions can realise more effective and efficient conservation outcomes by improved project organisation through the application and integration of project management approach
