About action statements
The Flora and Fauna Guarantee Act 1988 provides for the listing of Victoria's threatened plant and animal species, ecological communities and potentially threatening processes. Under the Act, an Action Statement must be prepared by the Department of Environment and Primary Industries for each item following its listing.
Action Statements are like brief management plans. They provide some background information about the species, including its description, distribution, habitat, life history, the reasons for its decline and the threats which affect it. They also state what has been done to conserve the species and what will be done. Action Statements are designed to apply for three to five years, after which time they will be reviewed and updated.
In some cases, DEPI has prepared a single Action Statement for a group of species or communities. This is a more efficient approach and allows for common issues to be addressed and broader programs of action to be developed.
This system also allows DEPI to monitor the implementation of Action Statements and assist in their periodic revision.
