NSW Threatened Species Scientific Committee species assessment reports and advice

Some of these reports published before 25 August, 2017 by the NSW Scientific Committee refer to the Threatened Species Conservation Act, 1995 and the Threatened Species Conservation Regulation, 2010. This legislation and regulation has been replaced by the Biodiversity Conservation Act, 2016 and the Biodiversity Conservation Regulation, 2017. The NSW Scientific Committee is now called the NSW Threatened Species Scientific Committee.

Assessment reports

The criteria for listing species and ecological communities as critically endangered, endangered or vulnerable are published in the Biodiversity Conservation Regulation, 2017. The NSW Threatened Species Scientific Committee uses these criteria when assessing whether a species, population or ecological community should be listed in the Schedules of the Biodiversity Conservation Act, 2016. The NSW Threatened Species Scientific Committee has prepared guidelines (PDF 415KB) for interpreting the criteria.

Assessment reports are provided below. However, confidential information relating to personal contacts and threatened species locations may be removed from these reports. Information on the location of threatened species can be found in the Atlas of NSW Wildlife or Plantnet. Alternatively access to data may be obtained under licence.
