Conservation and the Western Australian flora
Under the Biodiversity Conservation Act 2016, the Minister for Environment may list species of flora as threatened flora in the categories of critically endangered, endangered or vulnerable if they are considered to be in danger of extinction or otherwise in accordance with the ministerial guidelines.
A summary and definition of the Conservation Codes applied to plants in Western Australia may be found on our Threatened species and communities page.
Click on a bioregion acronym (e.g. “GSD”) or province name in the map below to retrieve a listing of the conservation taxa in that area.
See the primer on WA’s IBRA regions for further information.
