Foreword


Recovery plans are developed within the framework laid down in Department of Environment and Conservation Policy Statements Nos. 44 and 50 (CALM 1992, 1994), and the Australian Government Department for Sustainability, Environment, Water, Population and Communities (DSEWPaC’s) Recovery Planning Compliance Checklist for Legislative and Process Requirements (DEWHA 2008a). Recovery plans outline the recovery actions that are required to urgently address those threatening processes most affecting the ongoing survival of threatened taxa or ecological communities, and begin the recovery process. The attainment of objectives and the provision of funds necessary to implement actions are subject to budgetary and other constraints affecting the parties involved, as well as the need to address other priorities.
This recovery plan was approved by the Department of Environment and Conservation, Western Australia. Approved recovery plans are subject to modification as dictated by new findings, changes in status of the taxon or ecological community, and the completion of recovery actions.

Information in this recovery plan was accurate at January 2013.
