Consultation on SA Threatened Species Schedule Updates

Ashleigh Coombs - Monday, July 22, 2019

You are invited to provide comment on proposed changes to the conservation status of species listed in Threatened Species Schedules 7, 8 and 9 of the National Parks and Wildlife Act 1972.

The proposed changes to the Threatened Species Schedules include 65 changes in status including:

  • 30 species listed for the first time
  • 15 species up-listed to a more threatened category
  • 5 species down-listed to a less threatened category
  • 15 species to be de-listed from the Schedules
  • Amendments are also proposed for changes to the names of 79 plant and 138 animal species and/or the families they are classified within to reflect updates the taxonomy and/or nomenclature since the last update of the Schedules.

    More information can be found on the Department’s website here and a full list of the updates is included in the attached consultation document. Your responses will help to update the conservation status listing of threatened plants and animals in South Australia and ensure that conservation efforts are appropriately directed. Suggestions for priority assessments of species not listed here will also be considered for inclusion in the ongoing assessments work plan.

    Comments relating to the eligibility of these species for the recommended status classifications and criteria, together with additional information relevant to the assessments, should be sent to:

    DEW.ThreatenedSpecies_Schedules@sa.gov.au.

    Comments will be accepted until 16 August 2019.

    Remnant Native Vegetation Plan - City of Marion

    Ashleigh Coombs - Friday, December 01, 2017

    I am pleased to advise that after approximately 18 months of pretty hard slog, many many reports and liaison with elected members and other staff we have been able to release the draft Remnant Native Vegetation Plan 2018 to 2023 for community consultation. This document will be the basis for guiding and funding ongoing works to protect precious Remnant Native Vegetation across the City of Marion. Please have a look and undertake the very small survey. Please also feel free to send the link to other members of your groups and anyone you think may be interested. Hopefully we will have some overwhelmingly positive feedback to allow this exciting initiative to continue, I am quite dependant on your support to ensure this occurs. Please feel free to contact me if you wish to discuss this further.

    An exciting offer for your members

    Ashleigh Coombs - Saturday, October 28, 2017

    Dear Conservation SA members,

    For a while we’ve been exploring better options for communities as a result of the breathtaking drop in the price of solar and batteries.

    We think that a community solar program is a perfect solution to our current electricity crises. So, we’ve helped develop a new program exclusively for South Australia, using the “Solar 2.0” platform created by ShineHub and backed by the Australian Solar Council.

    In Northern Rivers NSW, a similar community solar model recently helped 110 homeowners go solar, with over half adding batteries. The reaction has been incredibly positive - some members are reporting bills as low as $3.78 per month in the middle of winter!

    Check out this recent story.

    The exclusive offer will include a very exciting Australian-first solar and battery package that will deliver an instant 25% reduction in power bills from Day 1 with no up-front investment required.

    We are hoping that you might consider forwarding on details of this offer to your members.

    Through this offer, your members will get access to:

    • Highly competitive pricing
    • Top solar and battery brands - including SA-made Tindo Solar
    • No-nonsense advice from unbiased experts
    • Trustworthy, vetted local solar companies
    • Independent quality assurance and extra warranty protection

    On top of that, Conservation SA will get a small donation every time one of your members goes solar. So, by passing this offer on to your members, you will help us as well as them.

    Early next week, we will send you an email that we hope you will consider forwarding on to your members and others in your community.

    Equally, if you wanted to get more involved in the roll-out of this campaign, we would be happy to share the donation with your group.

    Ultimately, we want as many South Australians to embrace clean energy, and think this is a very exciting opportunity, so we want it to spread as widely as possible.

    If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to call me on 8223 5155 or 0417 879 439.

    I’ll be in touch soon!
