Invitation to comment
This plan has been prepared by the QLD Department of Environment and Science for consideration as an approved Wildlife Trade Management Plan under section 303FO of the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 (the EPBC Act). It is proposed that, should the plan be approved, it will be in force for five (5) years from the date of the declaration.
This plan details the status of protected flora under QLD legislation and the licensing and reporting requirements based primarily on the protected plants legislative framework, provisions for which are contained in the Nature Conservation Act 1999, and the Nature Conservation (Wildlife Management) Regulation 2006, the Nature Conservation (Administration) Regulation 2017 and the Nature Conservation (Wildlife) Regulation 2006. It continues the system to facilitate and regulate sustainably harvesting material for the native plant industry in QLD. The tools and strategies in this plan support the long-term conservation of plant species used in the commercial industry, in both their natural habitat and as part of a viable cultivated native flora industry.
