The EPBC Act provides a legal framework to protect and manage nationally and internationally important flora, fauna, ecological communities and heritage places—defined in the EPBC Act as matters of national environmental significance. In addition, the EPBC Act confers jurisdiction over actions that have a significant impact on the environment where the actions affect, or are taken on, Commonwealth land, or are carried out by a Commonwealth agency even if that significant impact is not on one of the nine matters of 'national environmental significance'. Information about this special Commonwealth category is not included in this fact sheet.
EPBC Act - Frequently asked questions
As environment is the sum total of all surroundings of a living organism, including natural forces and biodiversity is the degree of variation of life which measure the variety of organisms present in different ecosystems, we have to ensure the safety of environment and biodiversity for our own security. Biodiversity is the variety of all life forms on earth - the different plants, animals and micro-organisms and the ecosystems of which they are a part. Despite these activities, mountains are still facing enormous pressure from various drivers of global change, including climate change. What is the issue? It plays a key role in the functioning of ecosystems and the provision of ecosystem services which are essential for human life and well-being. Without a global environment that is healthy and capable of supporting a diversity of life, no human population can exist.
Show all documents New Zealand is recognised as a biodiversity hotspot which has undergone widespread anthropogenic change in a relatively short time. Using its own threat classification system based on the International Union for Conservation of Nature IUCN Red List but modified to suit the island characteristics of its biota, New Zealand has identified 2, species and subspecies within 14 taxonomic groups that are threatened with extinction. It is argued that New Zealand needs to develop similar legislation to the ESA and EPBC to enable an integrated and legally accountable approach to the management and recovery of threatened species. A strength of the ESA and EPBC is that species that have been assessed to be threatened with extinction are listed on a central government register with a legal mandate for the production of recovery plans. A weakness of both acts is that species can languish on these lists without effective recovery actions. Although not always implemented, both acts have the provision for the protection and conservation of critical habitat.

Construction of the North East Link project is expected to require the removal of up to Matted Flax-lily plants. Impacts will be managed through a salvage and translocation plan. The translocation of Matted Flax-lilies has been successful for other major projects in the local area including the South Morang Rail Extension Project and Melbourne Wholesale Markets.
