Brindabella Midge Orchid.
A Regent Honeyeater.
NORTHERN Corroboree Frogs, Swift Parrots, Regent Honeyeaters and two species of rare orchids are now listed as “critically endangered” in the ACT to align with national listings.
Seventeen other nationally threatened species have also been added to the ACT Threatened Native Species List across various categories.
The ACT government has changed the status of these species to reflect their status in the Commonwealth’s Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act.
A full list of amendments is at EPSDD website.
