This study began with a survey of techniques current in the Australian mining industry for re-colonising rehabilitated mined land with appropriate fauna.

It then went on to review potential benefits of these techniques and to recommend which techniques should be most vigorously pursued.

The latter include control of feral predators, re-establishment and conservation of tree hollows, and addition of habitat logs.
