Endangered

The criteria for declaring a species as endangered are if:

  • there have not been thorough searches conducted for the wildlife and the wildlife has not been seen in the wild over a period that is appropriate for the life cycle or form of the wildlife; or
  • the habitat or distribution of the wildlife has been reduced to an extent that the wildlife may be in danger of extinction; or
  • the population size of the wildlife has declined, or is likely to decline, to an extent that the wildlife may be in danger of extinction; or
  • the survival of the wildlife in the wild is unlikely if a threatening process continues.

The Governor in Council may classify a species as endangered by amending the Nature Conservation (Wildlife) Regulations 2006 (PDF)* where the above criteria under the Nature Conservation Act 1992 (NCA) (PDF)* have been met.
