New South Wales is home to a diverse variety of plants and animals, as well as the habitat in which they live. Biodiversity underpins the health of our planet, our wellbeing, the economy and our livelihoods.
The statutory review of the Biodiversity Conservation Act is being led by independent experts Dr Ken Henry AC, Mr Mike Mrdak AO, Dr John Keniry AM and Distinguished Professor Michelle Leishman. The independent experts have developed a consultation paper with survey questions to prompt your consideration of issues and opportunities to improve biodiversity conservation in New South Wales.
Readers are encouraged to respond to as many survey questions as they wish, and to comment on any other issues relevant to the review. Real-life examples of how the Biodiversity Conservation Act is or is not working in practice are encouraged, as these will improve our understanding of the key issues.
