Threatened Species and Endangered Ecological Communities in Eurobodalla
Eurobodalla Shire is home to many threatened species and endangered ecological communities.
We work with other agencies and the community to reduce the pressures and threats that impact negatively on these species. This includes work to improve the condition and increase the extent of threatened species habitat and endangered communities where possible. This page provides you with more information about the species and communities found across the region.
Proposal to list Illawarra and South Coast lowland grassy woodland ecological community under the EPBC Act
A proposal from the Australian Government Department of the Environment to list the Illawarra and South Coast lowland grassy woodland ecological community as 'critically endangered' under the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 (EPBC Act) was passed 16 September 2016.
Lowland grassy woodlands were already federally protected within Eurobodalla Shire prior to this proposal and the only part that was listed as critically endangered under the EPBC Act was in the south east corner bioregion.
At this time there is no adopted or made recovery plan, as there are no main threats to the ecological community.
In NSW, a threatened species is a plant or animal species that is listed under the NSW Threatened Species Conservation Act 1995, or the NSW Fisheries Management Act 1994. Some species may also be listed nationally by the Australian Government under the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 (the EPBC Act). Listed threatened species are divided into a number of categories, depending on the extent to which they are threatened.

Endangered Ecological Communities
Endangered Ecological Communities (EECs) are plant communities under threat from a range of activities. Endangered ecological communities are listed in the same way as threatened species, and are often referred to as EECs. There are 12 endangered ecological communities that can be found in Eurobodalla Shire. Fact Sheets about most of these communities can be downloaded below. Some of them cover more than one EEC. A number of others provide management information. Hard copies can be ordered from Council on request. A report that provides more comprehensive information about the recognition and management of EECs found in the southern NSW coastal region is also available as a download.
