Cool Temperate Rainforest and the Flora and Fauna Guarantee Act

Cool Temperate Rainforest (nomination 207) was listed as a threatened community under the Flora and Fauna Guarantee Act in 1992. After more that ten years, an Action Statement has yet to be completed.

All threatened species and threatening process listed under the Flora and Fauna Guarantee Act 1988 must have an Action Statement completed 'as soon as possible' after listing. An Action Statement would set out management prescriptions to protect rainforest from logging practices.

In April 2001 the department advised that an Action Statement for Cool Temperate Rainforest would be completed by late 2001. This was never done.
