Threatened Fauna

Threatened fauna are animal species which are likely to become extinct or which have been declared in need of special protection at a Federal or State level. These species should be protected in order to prevent extinction and to encourage species recovery.

The Shire is known or likely to contain a number of threatened fauna species listed under the federal EPBC Act 1999 and is also likely to contain habitat for a number of threatened fauna species which should also be protected so that in the event of species recovery, populations can expand.

The presence of Threatened or Specially Protected Fauna in the Shire of Kalamunda is summarised in the table below.
More information on threatened species can be found on the Department of Parks and Wildlife (DPaW) website.
