LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY QUESTION
QUESTION NO. 241
Conservator of Flora and Fauna
What are the increased powers of the Conservator?
Mr Humphries - the answer to the Member's question is as follows:
Amendments to the Nature Conservation Act 1980 were introduced on 22 June 1995.
I believe Ms Horodny's question relates particularly to Part V of the Nature Conservation Act 1980, Conservation Directions.
Amendments were made to this part of the Act to enable the Conservator of Flora and Fauna to determine, by instrument, criteria for the purposes of issuing a direction in relation to the protection or conservation of native animals, native plants and native timber on occupied land or in relation to the treatment of a diseased native animal or plant.
