Vulnerable

The criteria for declaring a species as vulnerable are if:

  • its population is decreasing because of threatening processes, or
  • its population has been seriously depleted and its protection is not secured, or
  • its population, while abundant, is at risk because of threatening processes, or
  • its population is low or localised or depends on limited habitat that is at risk because of threatening processes.

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