Protected Species Maps Online!

04 September, 2014

The Australian Department of the Environment has made public the maps of protected species listed under the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999.

These include migratory species, native plants and animals which are vulnerable, endangered or critically endangered. These are known as species of National Environmental Significance.

If you are concerned about a project, be sure to check whether or not it will affect a protected species. This information could be critical to your submissions on an EIS.

The Department is encouraging input from users on the accuracy and usefulness of the information.

Environmental Defenders Office Queensland (EDO Qld) gives a strong legal voice to the environment when needed most.
