Bell Miner

BMAD Review – Final Report Now Available

Bell miner associated dieback (BMAD) is listed as a key threatening process under the NSW Threatened Species Conservation Act.

OEH recently engaged Knowledge Ecology to conduct a systematic review of the evidence available to inform BMAD management for a consortium of NSW Government agencies. The aim of the systematic review was to collate existing knowledge about the scale, relative causes and effects of BMAD in NSW and effective management interventions.

The final report from this review was the subject of a public workshop held in Coffs Harbour in October 2017. Feedback from the workshop will be provided to the Environmental Trust to inform future implementation of the report’s recommendations.

Recommendations from the report include the development of evidence-based guides and training for land managers to support identification, prevention and treatment of BMAD.
