Comment on Listing Assessments
Invitation to comment
You are invited to provide your views and supporting reasons related to:
- the eligibility of Phyllurus kabikabi (Oakview leaf-tailed gecko), assessed by the Queensland Government using the Common Assessment Method, for listing in the Critically Endangered category on the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 (EPBC Act) threatened species list; and
- the necessary conservation actions for this species.
Anyone may nominate a native species, ecological community or key threatening process for listing, transfer to a new category, or deletion from the threatened species list under the EPBC Act. The Threatened Species Scientific Committee (the Committee) undertakes the assessment of species to determine eligibility for inclusion on the list of threatened species and provides its recommendation to the Australian Government Minister for the Environment.
Please note that this assessment was prepared prior to the 2019/20 bushfires which affected many species across Australia. While the impacts on this species are yet to be fully understood, the Committee has determined that the proposed threat category is unlikely to change as a result of these events. The Committee is therefore proceeding with the assessment process under the EPBC Act, including public consultation and advice to the Minister for the Environment on the inclusion of the species in an appropriate threat category on the national list of threatened species. The Committee will review the Conservation Advice for this species once further information on bushfire impacts and appropriate recovery actions becomes available.
