What’s this about?

The draft Code of Practice introduces a new framework for regulating protected bird species. This framework operates under clause 2.9 of the Biodiversity Conservation Regulation 2017.

Key features include:

  1. Risk-Based Assessment
    • The included bird species have been evaluated using a risk-based tool.
    • This tool integrates the most robust and current evidence.
    • It employs a structured decision-making approach, considering agreed parameters and risk attributes.
  2. Public Participation
    • The draft Code of Practice is open for public review and feedback.
    • Stakeholders and interested parties are encouraged to submit their comments.

Your participation in the consultation process is essential to ensure the final Code of Practice is comprehensive and effective.
