Show all documents New Zealand is recognised as a biodiversity hotspot which has undergone widespread anthropogenic change in a relatively short time. Using its own threat classification system based on the International Union for Conservation of Nature IUCN Red List but modified to suit the island characteristics of its biota, New Zealand has identified 2, species and subspecies within 14 taxonomic groups that are threatened with extinction. It is argued that New Zealand needs to develop similar legislation to the ESA and EPBC to enable an integrated and legally accountable approach to the management and recovery of threatened species. A strength of the ESA and EPBC is that species that have been assessed to be threatened with extinction are listed on a central government register with a legal mandate for the production of recovery plans.
PDF version [ KB ]. The first is the environmental assessment regime for actions that are likely to have a significant impact on matters of national environmental significance. The second is the regime for biodiversity conservation, which includes, for example, processes for listing and managing threatened species, ecological communities and protected areas such as National and Commonwealth Heritage places and Commonwealth reserves , as well as provisions regulating wildlife trade. Under the EPBC Act , actions that have, or are likely to have, a significant impact on a matter of national environmental significance require approval from the Commonwealth Environment Minister. Existing activities do not require approval, although a substantial change such as an enlargement, expansion or intensification of that activity may require approval sections 43A and 43B. In addition, approval is required for actions by Commonwealth agencies that are likely to have a significant impact on the environment, and actions by any person likely to have a significant impact on the environment on Commonwealth land.

The Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 (Cth): Dark Sides of Virtue
The Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act EPBC Act , long title An Act relating to the protection of the environment and the conservation of biodiversity, and for related purposes , is an Act of the Parliament of Australia that provides a framework for protection of the Australian environment , including its biodiversity and its natural and culturally significant places. Enacted on 17 July , it established a range of processes to help protect and promote the recovery of threatened species and ecological communities , and preserve significant places from decline. Lists of threatened species are drawn up under the Act, and these lists, the primary reference to threatened species in Australia, are available online through the Species Profile and Threats Database SPRAT. As an Act of the Australian Parliament , it relies for its constitutional validity upon the legislative powers of the Parliament granted by the Australian Constitution , and key provisions of the Act are largely based on a number of international, multilateral or bilateral treaties.
The EPBC Act provides a legal framework to protect and manage nationally and internationally important flora, fauna, ecological communities and heritage places—defined in the EPBC Act as matters of national environmental significance. In addition, the EPBC Act confers jurisdiction over actions that have a significant impact on the environment where the actions affect, or are taken on, Commonwealth land, or are carried out by a Commonwealth agency even if that significant impact is not on one of the nine matters of 'national environmental significance'. Information about this special Commonwealth category is not included in this fact sheet. Matters of national environmental significance are important to all Australians and, given the interconnectedness of the global biosphere, internationally as well.

Она открыла глаза, не в состоянии даже протянуть руку. Простыня на его половине кровати была холодной. Дэвид исчез. Значит, приснилось, подумала Сьюзан и села в кровати. Комната в викторианском стиле, сплошь кружева и антиквариат - лучший гостиничный номер в Стоун-Мэнор.
Этот враждебный мир заполняли рабочие мостки, фреоновые трубки и пропасть глубиной 136 футов, на дне которой располагались генераторы питания ТРАНСТЕКСТА… Чатрукьяну страшно не хотелось погружаться в этот мир, да и вставать на пути Стратмора было далеко не безопасно, но долг есть долг. Завтра они скажут мне спасибо, - подумал он, так и не решив, правильно ли поступает.
As environment is the sum total of all surroundings of a living organism, including natural forces and biodiversity is the degree of variation of life which measure the variety of organisms present in different ecosystems, we have to ensure the safety of environment and biodiversity for our own security.
