Review of the NT classification of wildlife (Threatened species list)

There is a continuing need to review the conservation status of wildlife species in the Northern Territory and to update the ‘Classification of Wildlife’, which includes the threatened species list for the NT.

It is important that we correctly identify which species are threatened and to what degree. Through this process we can provide accurate advice in environmental impact assessment and approval processes on the likely impacts to threatened species. The Classification of Wildlife also allows us to prioritise and plan management actions and conservation programs to conserve threatened species.

The Classification of Wildlife was last revised in 2012 and the Flora and Fauna Division of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources has now completed the first stage of another review.

There are 39 proposed changes to the Threatened Species List, plus a variety of changes updating the taxonomy of species in the Classification of Wildlife document.

We are now seeking public comment on the proposed changes.

The period of public consultation commenced on 25 January 2021 and submissions close on 24 February 2021.
