The Threatened Species Conservation Act 1995 (TSC Act) commenced on 1 January 1996 and was replaced by the Biodiversity Conservation Act 2016 (BC Act) on 25 August 2017.
The NSW Scientific Committee established under the TSC Act assessed the threat status of species, populations and ecological communities using the listing criteria of the TSC Act and the Threatened Species Conservation Regulation 2010.
The NSW Scientific Committee also published review reports for groups of animals and plants.
These assessment and reviews were evaluated at the State level rather than the national level. They are published here for reference purposes and some information may have been superseded by later listings or assessment and review reports.
The NSW Scientific Committee prepared a project report on the review of selected species in the Schedules of the Threatened Species Conservation Act 1995 which was undertaken during the period 2007 to 2009.
This 2001 NSW Scientific Committee report considers the status of the 40 marine mammal species that have been reliably recorded in NSW waters. It recommends changes to the status of some species in the schedules of threatened species.
This 2002 NSW Scientific Committee publication reviews the status of a number of plant species listed as vulnerable, endangered or presumed extinct in NSW, and recommends changes to the status of a number of species.
This report, commissioned by the NSW Scientific Committee, reviews the conservation status of marine turtles and snakes that have been recorded in NSW waters.
