About this document
The draft recovery plan for the listed threatened Clay pans of the Swan Coastal Plain Ecological Community, was prepared by the Western Australian Department of Parks and Wildlife, and is proposed to be adopted as the national recovery plan for this species under the EPBC Act.
This ecological community is endemic to WA and is listed as Critically Endangered. There are 114 occurrences of the clay pan communities in 50 separate locations that occupy a total of about 909 ha. The communities are highly fragmented, with about 60% of occurrences under 10 ha in size.
The draft recovery plan provides information on distribution, decline, aspects of ecology and biology, and threatening processes, and presents the actions and associated costs considered necessary to recover this ecological community.
