Proposed Amendments to the status of threatened species in SA
What is being decided?
The Department is proposing some amendments to the Threatened Species Schedules 7, 8 and 9 of the National Parks and Wildlife Act 1972.
Following a series of panel workshops involving local and state ecological experts, the Department has been compiling available evidence to assess the conservation status of the State’s plant and animal species.
The proposed amendments are not a revision of the entire threatened species schedules; further updates will be proposed periodically, as additional species assessments are completed.
What are the next steps?
Public consultation was conducted from the 19 July to 16 August 2019. A detailed analysis of submissions together with the proposed amendments will be considered by the Parks and Wilderness Council. Subject to Cabinet endorsement, the recommendations will be used to draft regulations to amend Schedules 7, 8 and 9 of the National Parks and Wildlife Act 1972.
Once gazetted a summary of the changes to the Threatened Species Schedules will be publicly available on this website.
