CALL FOR COMMENTS: Threatened Species Act review (NSW)

Your views are being sought to help shape the way threatened species are managed in New South Wales. Under the Threatened Species Conservation Act 1995, the Minister for Climate Change and the Environment is required to review the Act every 5 years to determine whether the policy objectives of the Act remain valid, and whether the terms of the Act remain appropriate for securing those objectives.

To assist you in formulating your views the Department of Environment, Climate Change and Water has prepared a background paper. The paper is not comprehensive, however it does provide some guidance to the major components of the Act. It may be useful as a communication tool with your organisation/membership. Responses need not be confined to the questions contained in the paper. A copy of the background paper can be downloaded from http://tracking.involvecrm.com/?ADMwMDAxQzAwNDFhMTM1M2FiZS0zM2IxLTQxNmUtYTNhOS1jMGFhYTRjZDQxMjMvMjU1ODAwNjdodHRwOi8vd3d3LmVudmlyb25tZW50Lm5zdy5nb3YuYXUvY29uc3VsdC9EZWNQdWJsaWNDb25zdWx0YXRpb24uaHRt
Written submissions should be directed to Threatened Species Conservation Act Review, Director, Landscapes and Ecosystems Conservation Branch, Department of Environment, Climate Change and Water, PO Box A290, Sydney South NSW 1232 or e-mail mailto:tscact.review@environment.nsw.gov.au%3cmailto:tscact.review@environment.nsw.gov.au>, by 5pm on Wednesday, 17 November 2010.
