Draft sustainable management plan for the harvest, salvage and propagation of protected whole plants 2011-2015

OEH is inviting public submissions to its draft whole plant management plan. The plan describes the proposed regulatory framework for managing the commercial harvest, salvage and growing of protected whole plants such as grass trees, cabbage tree palms, staghorns, orchids and macrozamias. Included in the plan are proposed licensing arrangements for persons or businesses that extract whole plants, including seeds from the wild, or propagate whole native plants for sale. The plan also describes the operational framework under which licensed activities can be undertaken including tagging, reporting and site management obligations.

This plan is also being concurrently exhibited by the Commonwealth Department of Sustainability, Environment, Water, Population and Communities as wildlife trade management plan and an artificial propagation program under the Commonwealth Government’s Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999.
