EPBC Act policy statement 3.13
About this policy statement
The black-throated finch (southern) (Poephila cincta cincta) is listed as endangered under the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 (EPBC Act). This policy statement is intended to provide a guide for stakeholders in determining whether a proposed action is likely to have a significant impact on the black-throated finch (southern) in grassy open woodlands and forests.
The black- throated finch (southern) historically occurred from the northern tablelands and north-west slope regions of New South Wales to the Atherton tablelands in north Queensland, but is now thought to be largely restricted to the northern part of its former range. This policy statement should be read in conjunction with Significant impact guidelines 1.1 - Matters of national environmental significance
There may be other EPBC Act policy statements available which provide further guidance.
