Five years ago Humane Society International nominated the Eastern Mallee Bird Community and Plains Mallee Box Woodland to be listed as threatened ecological communities under national environment law.
These vital habitats have been massively cleared since colonisation and are on their last legs – increased protection can’t wait any longer.
After long and thorough assessment processes both ecological communities have been strongly recommended for listing by the Threatened Species Scientific Committee.
We’re at the final hurdle of having these much-needed protections achieved – please help us get them over the line by providing comment as part of the consultation process today!
