The Tasmanian lakes Pedder and Edgar were inundated in 1972 to create a reservoir to feed into a hydroelectric powerscheme, despite biologists highlighting the uniqueness of the fauna therein. This fauna included undescribed species ofphreatoicidean isopods, which were noted in several subsequent publications but not formally described. In 2010, the orig-inal beds of these two lakes were revisited and successfully sampled for these isopods as part of a program to assess theconservation status…

Extinct habitat, extant species: lessons learned from conservation recovery actions for the Pedder galaxias (Galaxias pedderensis) in south-west Tasmania, Australia
TLDR
The conservation program, and specifically the translocation recovery action, saved the Pedder galaxias from extinction and Recommendations are provided arising from this case study to guide conservation of freshwater fish in similar circumstances.

TLDR
It is argued that the multiplication of the narrow-range endemic species is the result of their homing behaviour combined with monsoonal alternation between aridity and flooding over recent and geological time scales since the Miocene period.

TLDR
Faunal abundance, dominated by the trichopteran Notalina parkeri, peaked in 1977 and then steadily declined to low levels and five species peculiar to the lakes (Lake Pedder and Lake Edgar) have disappeared.
