TSX – A threatened species index for Australia
The first of its type in the world, the TSX provides reliable and robust measures of changes in the relative abundance of Australia’s threatened and near-threatened species at national, state and regional levels.

Understanding these changes in species populations is crucial for monitoring progress towards global conservation targets; allowing users to justify and measure the benefits of conservation investments, stimulate targeted responses and raise the public profile of threatened species.
