The Wildlife and Threatened Species Bushfire Recovery Expert Panel, late last week, released a list of the 191 invertebrate and 471 plant species which have been identified as the highest priorities for urgent management intervention to support recovery from the 2019-20 bushfires.

For further research: Lisa Cox’s Guardian article on the government analysis, the invertebrate study and the plant study. Also, here’s a link to a Sydney-based citizen science project and the WIRES x Landcare grant application page (applications close on April 30).
