Using Project Hotspot findings to better protect

In addition to providing a resource for the community, the project outputs are also of value to decision makers, government authorities, conservation groups and industry (end users), and relevant to a wide variety of applications including oil spill response, environmental impact assessment and resource management. Improved knowledge of threatened species hotspots enables end users to better implement measures to protect these species.
