About approved threat abatement plans
Threat abatement plans establish a national framework to guide and coordinate Australia's response to key threatening processes registered under the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 (EPBC Act).
The plans identify research, management and other actions needed to ensure the long-term survival of native species and ecological communities affected by key threatening processes. The plans should be read in conjunction with their accompanying background documents which provide information on the biology, distribution, impacts and current management practices relevant to the respective threat.
Under subsection 279(2) of the EPBC Act, the Australian Government environment minister is required to review threat abatement plans at least every five years.
