sustainability through science & innovation


Translocations experience very low success rates. Only 10% - 35% of translocated animals survive and breed successfully. Poor planning and a failure to understand the role of genetics compromises the outcomes of many translocations.

Successful translocations through genetic science

Using science, cesar can develop Genetic Translocation Strategies to help achieve a higher survival rate and greater chances of successful breeding. Our strategies will maximise genetic diversity in target populations creating improved conditions for long term species survival.

Applications of our Genetic Translocation Strategies

  • Conservation and recovery of threatened species in decline or on the brink of extinction
  • Improving the adaptability of species and populations to future environmental threats such as climate change
  • Addressing fragmentation issues as a result of human development and activity

Expertise and experience in translocation

  • Our Genetic Translocation Strategies utilise the work of leading population geneticists and conservation biologists
  • We develop strategies for species of both flora and fauna, across terrestrial and aquatic environments, including species of commercial value like abalone
  • Our team have implemented translocation strategies for numerous threatened species including the mountain pygmy possum, brush-tailed rock wallaby, eastern barred bandicoots, dwarf galaxias and Yarra pygmy perch
  • We have developed translocation strategies for plant species in revegetation programs
  • Our Genetic Translocation Strategies incorporate local and federal policies
