Threatened fauna are animal species which are likely to become extinct or which have been declared in need of special protection at a Federal or State level. These species should be protected in order to prevent extinction and to encourage species recovery.
The City is known or likely to contain a number of threatened fauna species listed under the Australian Government’s Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 (EPBC Act) and is also likely to contain habitat for a number of threatened fauna species which should also be protected so that in the event of species recovery, populations can expand.
The presence of Threatened or Specially Protected Fauna in the City of Kalamunda is summarised in the tables below.
More information on threatened species and the Threatened and Priority Fauna list can be found on the Department of Biodiversity and Attractions (Parks and Wildlife) website.
Migratory species listed under international agreements to which Australia is a party are protected under the Australian Government's central piece of environmental legislation, the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 (EPBC Act)
