Native and threatened species
The Eurobodalla Shire is home to many threatened species and endangered ecological communities.
In NSW, a threatened species is a plant or animal species that is listed under the Biodiversity Conservation Act 2016 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.
Council works 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.
Endangered ecological communities
Where possible, we work with other agencies and the community to reduce threats and improve conditions for threatened species and endangered communities.
Grey-headed flying-fox population numbers vary with seasonal migration. Flying-foxes forage at night wherever there are food sources.
Eurobodalla nesting box program
We are installing nesting boxes for local wildlife throughout the Eurobodalla following the impacts of the 2019/20 bushfires.
