The fauna species review reports were published before 25 August, 2017 by the NSW Scientific Committee and 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 This legislation and regulation has been replaced by the Biodiversity Conservation Act, 2016 and the Biodiversity Conservation Regulation, 2017.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.
Under the Threatened Species Conservation Act, the NSW Scientific Committee was required to keep the lists of threatened species, populations, ecological communities and key threatening processes in the Schedules of the TSC Act under review and determine whether any changes to the lists were necessary.
These 2007-2009 fauna reports provide a review of information, available at the time of assessment, on the species in NSW. For those species where the threat status changed within the Schedules, or the species was removed from the Schedules, the Scientific Committee's Final Determination is also available.
