Areas of Conservation Significance on Cape York Peninsula

2.0 Identification of Values - Introduction

The report outlines how the assessment of each value was undertaken and the results of those analyses. It is broadly broken into four sections addressing:

PART A - CONSERVATION VALUES USING BROAD SCALE PENINSULA-WIDE MODELLING TO IDENTIFY AREAS OF SIGNIFICANCE

PART B - CONSERVATION VALUES USING A THEMATIC APPROACH TO IDENTIFY AREAS OF SIGNIFICANCE.

PART C - CONSERVATION VALUES THAT ARE SPECIES SPECIFIC OR POINT LOCATION BASED

PART D - CONSERVATION VALUES COLLATED INTO AREAS OF CONSERVATION SIGNIFICANCE

The division of the report into these three types of value does not imply any relative ranking between the analyses undertaken. As outlined in the introduction any place identified as having even only one value is of conservation significance for that identified value.

The Register of the National Estate (RNE) criteria applicable to each of the analyses are outlined for each value discussed. Particularly for the thematic analysis, the criteria are often combined to determine those areas of significance.

The majority of the work undertaken has been by the staff of the AHC and ERIN. There are however some components that have been

undertaken by QDEH or consultants as outlined in the text.
