The Natural Resource Management Ministerial Council finalised the review of the National Strategy for the Conservation of Australia's Biological Diversity (1996) in 2010. A new strategy, Australia's Biodiversity Conservation Strategy 2010-2030 (2010) is available at www.environment.gov.au/biodiversity/strategy/index.html
The Department's website will be progressively updated to reflect the new strategy.
