    2. 2. Why prioritize?
    3. 3. MOST critical needs
    4. 4. Species with the GREATEST conservation need
    5. 5. PRECLUDE the need to list

    7. 7. “Best Practice” method or technique, through experience and research, has consistently shown results superior to those achieved by other means

    9. 9. Define objectives List biodiversity assets Weight assets List management projectsEstimate cost Predict the benefit Estimate likelihood of success State constraints Choose set of projects Joseph et al. 2009 Optimal Allocation
    10. 10. (1) Define objectives e.g., To secure (over a period of 50 years) the greatest number of threatened species of value given a limited budget
    11. 11. (2) List biodiversity assets of interest
    12. 12. (3) Weight assets • Cultural significance • Social values • Economic importance • Evolutionary significance • Ecological function • Endemicity • Taxonomic distinctiveness • Climate Change Sensitivity • Threat status • Conservation responsibility of jurisdiction for species
    13. 13. Levels of Endemism: State
    14. 14. Levels of Endemism: Ecoregion
    15. 15. Levels of Endemism: Region
    16. 16. Taxonomic distinctiveness http://www.catalogueoflife.org/

    18. 18. Assess Risk • Range/Distribution • Abundance/Condition • Threats • Trends (short- & long- term)
    19. 19. Threat Status • SH Possibly Extirpated • S1 Critically Imperiled • S2 Imperiled • S3 Vulnerable • S4 Apparently Secure • S5 Secure
    20. 20. (4) List management projects • Choose an appropriate project for each species • Project is minimum set of all necessary actions for obtaining a reasonable (≥95%) probability of securing the species over 50 y • 4 compulsory components: – outcome monitoring – services and support – project management – infrastructure • at least one optional intervention (e.g., captive breeding, translocation, pest animal control, weed control, legal actions, education) • Specify precise location, intensity, and duration of management for each action
    21. 21. (5) Calculate the cost of each project • Total estimated cost over a 10-year period (i.e., SWAP revision period)
    22. 22. (6) Predict the benefit to assets
    23. 23. (7) Estimate likelihood of success • Mi = probability that each project, i, could be implemented successfully • Ni = probability that, if implemented successfully, it would be reasonably (≥95%) successful in securing the species • Total probability of success of each project, Si, = MiNi
    24. 24. (8) State constraints • Identify constraints on the projects and the total budget • Primary constraint is total budget available
    25. 25. (9) Rank projects
