Comment on listing assessment
Invitation to comment
You are invited to provide your views and supporting reasons on the eligibility of ‘Fire regimes that cause biodiversity decline’ for inclusion on the list of key threatening processes under the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 and whether if listed, a threat abatement plan is a feasible, effective and efficient way of abating the process.
The views of experts, representative organisations, land managers, community groups and the general public are welcome. Responses can be provided by any interested person.
Anyone may nominate a native species, ecological community or threatening process for listing under the EPBC Act or for a transfer of an item already on the list to a new listing category. The Threatened Species Scientific Committee undertakes the assessment of a threatening process to determine eligibility for inclusion on the list of key threatening processes and provides its advice to the Australian Government Minister for the Environment.
