Common assessment method changes

Queensland and other states and territories have established a standardised method for assessing and listing nationally threatened species—the Common Assessment Method.

Two new classes of wildlife—‘extinct’ and ‘critically endangered’—have been established under the Nature Conservation Act 1992. The Animals Regulation and Plants Regulation give effect to the new classes by establishing the management intent and enabling the listing of species in accordance with the Threatened Species Committee recommendations.
