Protecting Native Animals, Plants, Threatened Species & Ecological Communities
We have updated and combined our fact sheets on native plants and animals and threatened species following the introduction of the Biodiversity Conservation Act 2016. The new fact sheet outlines the legal protections for native and threatened species in NSW.
This fact sheet will be useful for people who want to know what the legal protections for native animals and plants and threatened species are at a state level. It will also be useful for people who are concerned about breaches of environmental law.
