Preparing recovery plans
The Commonwealth Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 provides for recovery plans to be drafted for threatened species or ecological communities which are listed under the Act.
These plans may be drafted by a wide range of interested parties including consultants, individuals, groups, researchers or government agencies.
Where applicable, draft recovery plans will be made available on this site for public consultation before being provided by the Threatened Species Scientific Committee to the Australian Government Minister for Environment Protection, Heritage and the Arts for consideration except where state government agencies are required to conduct a public consultation period. The Minister must consider all comments on a proposed recovery plan made in response to the invitation for public comment.
A recovery plan only has force under the Act if it has been formally made or adopted by the Minister.
Plans will not be available for viewing until released for public comment.
For a comprehensive understanding of the provisions relating to nomination and listing, you should refer directly to the:
- Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999
- Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Regulations 2000
