Comment on Listing Assessments
Invitation to comment
You are invited to provide your views and supporting reasons in relation to the eligibility of the Dargo galaxias for inclusion on the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 (EPBC Act) threatened species list and necessary conservation actions for the species. In order for the EPBC Act list of threatened species to be seen as the authoritative list for the country, it is important that it reflect the true state of the Australian biota.
The views of experts, stakeholders 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 (the Committee) undertakes the assessment of species to determine eligibility for inclusion in the list of threatened species and provides its recommendation to the Australian Government Minister for the Environment.

Further, the Commonwealth, State and Territory governments have agreed to share threatened species assessment documentation (including comments) to ensure that all States and Territories have access to the same documentation when making a decision on the status of a potentially threatened species. This is also known as the ‘common assessment method’. As a result, any personal information that you have provided in connection with your comments may be shared between Commonwealth, State or Territory government entities to assist with their assessment processes.
