November 2016 – Download PDF
Our submission focusses on aspects of the regulatory framework for protecting flying-foxes. We recommend maintaining the independence of the Scientific Committee that makes decisions about about threatened species listings. We also recommend that there should be no further streamlining of flying-fox camp management regulations, or further exemptions of camp management actions from threatened species assessment requirements.
