“So what” for my operation?
A Biodiversity Management Plan can be compiled and approved for listed threatened species, or for species requiring special conservation attention. Various additional requirements pertaining to planning, environmental authorisations, monitoring and reporting can be applicable when your organisation conducts activities that may impact on these species. It is important for your organisation to take note of these implications and adhere to all requirements, should you conduct any activities that may impact on these species.
