The preparation of action statements is a statutory requirement for all listed taxa, communities and Potentially Threatening Processes (PTPs). An action statement sets out what has been done in the past, and identifies potential future actions intended to conserve and manage a species, community or PTP.

Annual Action Statement Preparation List

We publish an annual list of species, communities and potentially threatening processes for which an action statement will be prepared.

Supporting delivery of action statements

The FFG Act emphasises the importance of cooperative approaches to biodiversity conservation, recognising that all government agencies and the community can participate in the conservation effort.

The Victorian Government invites Traditional Owners, government and non-government organisations, private and public land managers to work together to support the preparation and implementation of action statements. We welcome the inclusion of traditional knowledge, and culturally specific actions aligned with self-determination where Traditional Owner groups see fit for incorporation.

Get in touch through threatened.species@deeca.vic.gov.au so we can partner and collaborate to strengthen the delivery of our conservation management actions to support the vision for Victoria’s biodiversity to be healthy, valued and actively cared for.
