Key threatening processes
A key threatening process is defined in the Threatened Species Conservation Act as a process that threatens, or could threaten, the survival or evolutionary development of species, populations or ecological communities.
Something can be a threatening process if it:
- adversely affects two or more threatened species, populations or ecological communities; or
- could cause species, populations or ecological communities that are not currently threatened to become threatened.
