Conservation categories and definitions for Priority Ecological Communities as 
listed by the Department of Parks and Wildlife 
Category 
Description 
Priority 1 
Poorly known ecological communities. 
Ecological communities that are known from very few occurrences with a very 
restricted distribution (generally ≤5 occurrences or a total area of ≤100
 ha). 
Occurrences are believed to be under threat either due to limited extent, or being on 
lands under immediate threat (e.g. within agricultural or pastoral lands, urban areas, 
active mineral leases) or for which current threats exist. May include communities with 
occurrences on protected lands. Communities may be included if they are 
comparatively well-known from one or more localities but do not meet adequacy of 
survey requirements, and/or are not well defined, and appear to be under immediate 
threat from known threatening processes across their range. 
Priority 2 
Poorly known ecological communities. 
Communities that are known from few occurrences with a restricted distribution 
(generally ≤10 occurrences or a total area of ≤200
 ha). At least some occurrences are 
not believed to be under immediate threat of destruction or degradation. Communities 
may be included if they are comparatively well known from one or more localities but 
do not meet adequacy of survey requirements, and/or are not well defined, and appear 
to be under threat from known threatening processes. 
Priority 3 
Poorly known ecological communities. 
(i) Communities that are known from several to many occurrences, a significant 
number or area of which are not under threat of habitat destruction or degradation or: 
(ii) communities known from a few widespread occurrences, which are either large or 
with significant remaining areas of habitat in which other occurrences may occur, much 
of it not under imminent threat, or; 
(iii) communities made up of large, and/or widespread occurrences, that may or may 
not be represented in the reserve system, but are under threat of modification across 
much of their range from processes such as grazing by domestic and/or feral stock, 
and inappropriate fire regimes. 
Communities may be included if they are comparatively well known from several 
localities but do not meet adequacy of survey requirements and/or are not well 
defined, and known threatening processes exist that could affect them. 
Priority 4 
Ecological communities that are adequately known, rare but not threatened or 
meet criteria for Near Threatened, or that have been recently removed from the 
threatened list. These communities require regular monitoring. 
(i) Rare. Ecological communities known from few occurrences that are considered to 
have been adequately surveyed, or for which sufficient knowledge is available, and 
that are considered not currently threatened or in need of special protection, but could 
be if present circumstances change. These communities are usually represented on 
conservation lands. 
(ii) Near Threatened. Ecological communities that are considered to have been 
adequately surveyed and that do not qualify for Conservation Dependent, but that are 
close to qualifying for Vulnerable. 
(iii) Ecological communities that have been removed from the list of threatened 
communities during the past five years.

Description 
Priority 5 
Conservation Dependent ecological communities. 
Ecological communities that are not threatened but are subject to a specific 
conservation program, the cessation of which would result in the community becoming 
threatened within five years. 
Other significant vegetation 
Vegetation may be significant for a range of reasons, other than a statutory listing as TEC or because 
the extent is below a threshold level. The EPA (2004) states that significant vegetation may include 
vegetation that includes the following: 

 
Scarcity 

 
Unusual species 

 
Novel combinations of species 

 
A role as a refuge 

 
A role as a key habitat for Threatened species or large population representing a significant 
proportion of the local to regional total population of a species 

 
Being representative of the range of a unit (particularly, a good local and/or regional example of 
a unit in ‘prime’ habitat, at the extremes of range, recently discovered range extensions, or 
isolated outliers of the main range) 

 
A restricted distribution 
This may apply at a number of levels, so the unit may be significant when considered at the fine-scale 
(intra-locality), intermediate-scale (locality or inter-locality) or broad-scale (local to region). 
Conservation significant flora and fauna 
Species of significant flora are protected under both Federal and State legislation. Any activities that 
are deemed to have a significant impact on species that are recognised by the EPBC Act, and/or the 
WC Act can warrant referral to the DotEE and/or the EPA.  
The Federal conservation level of flora and fauna species and their significance status is assessed 
under the EPBC Act. The significance levels for fauna used in the EPBC Act are those recommended 
by the International Union for the Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources (IUCN). 
Threatened species have been published as Specially Protected under the WC Act 1950, and listed 
under Schedules 1 to 7 of the Wildlife Conservation (Specially Protected Fauna) Notice for Threatened 
Fauna and Wildlife Conservation (Rare Flora) Notice for Threatened Flora. The schedules align with 
the categories of the EPBC Act. Threatened species are those are species which have been 
adequately searched for and are deemed to be, in the wild, either rare, at risk of extinction, or 
otherwise in need of special protection, and have been gazetted as such.  
Possibly threatened species that do not meet survey criteria, or are otherwise data deficient, are 
added to the Priority Fauna or Priority Flora Lists under Priorities 1, 2 or 3. These three categories are 
ranked in order of priority for survey and evaluation of conservation status so that consideration can 
be given to their declaration as threatened flora or fauna.  
Species that are adequately known, are rare but not threatened, or meet criteria for near threatened, 
or that have been recently removed from the threatened species or other specially protected fauna 
lists for other than taxonomic reasons, are placed in Priority 4. These species require regular 
monitoring.

DPaW Priority Listed 
1 
Priority One: 
Poorly-
known taxa 
Species that are known from one or a few locations (generally five or less) 
which are potentially at risk. All occurrences are either: very small; or on 
lands not managed for conservation, e.g. agricultural or pastoral lands, urban 
areas, road and rail reserves, gravel reserves and active mineral leases; or 
otherwise under threat of habitat destruction or degradation. Species may be 
included if they are comparatively well known from one or more locations but 
do not meet adequacy of survey requirements and appear to be under 
immediate threat from known threatening processes. Such species are in 
urgent need of further survey.
 
2 
Priority Two: 
Poorly-
known taxa 
Species that are known from one or a few locations (generally five or less), 
some of which are on lands managed primarily for nature conservation, e.g. 
national parks, conservation parks, nature reserves and other lands with 
secure tenure being managed for conservation. Species may be included if 
they are comparatively well known from one or more locations but do not 
meet adequacy of survey requirements and appear to be under threat from 
known threatening processes. Such species are in urgent need of further 
survey.
 
3 
Priority 
Three: 
Poorly-
known taxa 
Species that are known from several locations, and the species does not 
appear to be under imminent threat, or from few but widespread locations 
with either large population size or significant remaining areas of apparently 
suitable habitat, much of it not under imminent threat. Species may be 
included if they are comparatively well known from several locations but do 
not meet adequacy of survey requirements and known threatening processes 
exist that could affect them. Such species are in need of further survey.
 
4 
Priority Four: 
Rare, Near 
Threatened 
and other 
taxa in need 
of monitoring 
(a) Rare. Species that are considered to have been adequately surveyed, or 
for which sufficient knowledge is available, and that are considered not 
currently threatened or in need of special protection, but could be if present 
circumstances change. These species are usually represented on 
conservation lands.  
(b) Near Threatened. Species that are considered to have been adequately 
surveyed and that are close to qualifying for Vulnerable, but are not listed as 
Conservation Dependent.  
(c) Species that have been removed from the list of threatened species 
during the past five years for reasons other than taxonomy.
 
Migratory species listed under the EPBC Act 
The EPBC Act also protects land and migratory species that are listed under International 
Agreements. The list of migratory species established under section 209 of the EPBC Act comprises: 

 
Migratory species which are native to Australia and are included in the appendices to the Bonn 
Convention (Convention on the Conservation of Migratory Species of Wild Animals Appendices 
I and II) 

 
Migratory species included in annexes established under the Japan-Australia Migratory Bird 
Agreement (JAMBA) and the China

Australia Migratory Bird Agreement (CAMBA) 

 
GHD | Report for Main Roads Western Australia 

 Hill River Offset Property, 61/34834
 

 
Native, migratory species identified in a list established under, or an instrument made under, an 
international agreement approved by the Minister, such as the republic of Korea

Australia 
Migratory Bird Agreement (ROKAMBA) 
Other significant flora and fauna 
Flora species, subspecies, varieties, hybrids and ecotypes may be significant for a range of reasons, 
other than as Threatened (Declared Rare) Flora or Priority Flora. The EPA (2004) states that 
significant flora may include taxa that have: 

 
A keystone role in a particular habitat for threatened species or supporting large populations 
representing a significant proportion of the local regional population of a species 

 
Relic status 

 
Anomalous features that indicate a potential new discovery 

 
Being representative of the range of a species (particularly, at the extremes of range, recently 
discovered range extensions, or isolated outliers of the main range) 

 
The presence of restricted subspecies, varieties, or naturally occurring hybrids 

 
Local endemism/a restricted distribution 

 
Being poorly reserved 
The application of the degree of significance may apply at a range of scales. 
Introduced plants (weeds) 
Declared Pests 
Information on species considered to be Declared Pests is provided under State Biosecurity and 
Agriculture Management Act 2007. 
Weeds of National Significance  
The spread of weeds across a range of land uses or ecosystems is important in the context of socio-
economic and environmental values. The assessment of Weeds of National Significance (WoNS) is 
based on four major criteria: 

 
Invasiveness 

 
Impacts 

 
Potential for spread 

 
Socio-economic and environmental values 
Australian state and territory governments have identified thirty two Weeds of National Significance 
(WoNS); a list of 20 WoNS was endorsed in 1999 and a further 12 were added in 2012 (Australian 
Government 2014).

- non-threatened seabirds which have only been mapped for recorded breeding sites
- migratory species that are very widespread, vagrant, or only occur in small numbers
- some species and ecological communities that have only recently been listed
Not all species listed under the EPBC Act have been mapped (see below) and therefore a report is a general guide only.
Where available data supports mapping, the type of presence that can be determined from the data is indicated in general
terms. People using this information in making a referral may need to consider the qualifications below and may need to seek
and consider other information sources.
For threatened ecological communities where the distribution is well known, maps are derived from recovery plans, State
vegetation maps, remote sensing imagery and other sources. Where threatened ecological community distributions are less
well known, existing vegetation maps and point location data are used to produce indicative distribution maps.
- seals which have only been mapped for breeding sites near the Australian continent
Such breeding sites may be important for the protection of the Commonwealth Marine environment.
For species where the distributions are well known, maps are digitised from sources such as recovery plans and detailed
habitat studies. Where appropriate, core breeding, foraging and roosting areas are indicated under 'type of presence'. For
species whose distributions are less well known, point locations are collated from government wildlife authorities, museums,
and non-government organisations; bioclimatic distribution models are generated and these validated by experts. In some
cases, the distribution maps are based solely on expert knowledge.
The information presented in this report has been provided by a range of data sources as acknowledged at the end of the
report.

This report is designed to assist in identifying the locations of places which may be relevant in determining obligations under
the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999. It holds mapped locations of World and National Heritage
properties, Wetlands of International and National Importance, Commonwealth and State/Territory reserves, listed threatened,
migratory and marine species and listed threatened ecological communities. Mapping of Commonwealth land is not complete
at this stage. Maps have been collated from a range of sources at various resolutions.
- threatened species listed as extinct or considered as vagrants
- some terrestrial species that overfly the Commonwealth marine area
The following groups have been mapped, but may not cover the complete distribution of the species:
Only selected species covered by the following provisions of the EPBC Act have been mapped:
