The Threatened Species Recovery (TSR) Hub is based on the premise that biodiversity decline and extinction in Australia can be understood, and remedied, and that this can be done in a manner that is cost-effective and that involves the community as informed and interested participants.

The $60 million TSR Hub is supported by funding from the Australian Government's National Environmental Science Programme, matched with contributions from 10 of the country's leading academic institutions and the Australian Wildlife Conservancy.

It works closely with more than 20 collaborating organisations, including management agencies and non-government conservation groups, to ensure its research has an on-ground impact in threatened species management.
