Victorian Volcanic Plains Conservation Management Network

Raising awareness about the value and use of native grasslands, seasonal wetlands, grassy woodlands & other ecosystems on the Victorian Volcanic Plains

A brief journey through the FFG Act

This presentation is another one from the recent VVP Linear Reserves Workshop held for contractors and others who need to know about this values of grasslands and aspects of the relevant legislation. It also includes information about the guidelines on translocation of threatened species. Here is the link cma-ffg-training_slide-notes_May-2015.pdf

The threatened vegetation communities listed under the Flora and Fauna Guarantee Act (1988), have been matched to one or more Ecological Vegetation Classes (EVCs), and the bioregions in which they occur see the Biodiversity Interactive Mapping System. Remember that the mapping only provides an indication of what may be seen on the ground and decisions should not be made without a site visit and preferably at different times of the year. Here is the link to the protected flora controls.
