The species is listed as Endangered and it is therefore considered that all known habitat is habitat critical to its survival, and that all populations are important populations. Currently, a significant proportion of the species’ known occurrence is within mineral sands mining rehabilitation plots. As such, these occurrences should also be interpreted as representing important populations.



Benefits to other species or ecological communities
There are a number of threatened and priority species and one Threatened Ecological Community (TEC) in the wider habitat of Leucopogon obtectus. Several Declared Rare Flora (DRF) species occur within the 500 m buffer zones that have been placed around L. obtectus populations and L. obtectus population 34d occurs within the TEC buffer for the Endangered Lesueur-Coomallo Floristic Community A1.2 (Species-rich heath with emergent Hakea obliqua). Recovery actions that improve the health of L. obtectus populations will also protect these threatened species and the TEC.

International obligations

This plan is fully consistent with the aims and recommendations of the Convention on Biological Diversity, ratified by Australia in June 1993, and will assist in implementing Australia’s responsibilities under that Convention. Leucopogon obtectus is not specifically listed under any international treaty, and therefore this plan does not affect Australia’s obligations under any other international agreements.



Role and interests of indigenous people

According to the Department of Indigenous Affairs Aboriginal Heritage Sites Register, no sites of Aboriginal significance are known at or near populations of the subspecies covered by this plan.


The advice of the South West Aboriginal Land and Sea Council (SWALSC) and Department of Indigenous Affairs has been sought to identify groups with a cultural connection to land that is important for the species' conservation and to determine any indigenous management responsibilities for the land or issues or interests in the plan. Opportunities for indigenous roles in the recovery of the species will be encouraged and may exist through cultural interpretation and awareness of the species.
Continued liaison between DEC and the indigenous community will identify areas in which collaboration will assist implementation of recovery actions.
Affected interests
The Shires of Irwin, Three Springs, Carnamah, Coorow and Dandaragan are affected as land managers, and main Roads WA, and several mining companies are associated with land on which this species occurs.
