The tuart (Eucalyptus gomphocephala) Woodlands and Forests of the Swan Coastal Plain have been listed as Critically Endangered.
The Minister for the Environment, the Hon. Sussan Ley MP, has amended the list of threatened species and ecological communities under the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 to include 34 species and three ecological communities, transfer nine species between listing categories, remove six species and retain two species in their current category.
The amendments will take effect on the day after they are included on the Federal Register of Legislation. Once they have taken effect they will be published on the Department’s Species Profile and Threats Database (SPRAT).
