I have past the information on the gazetting date to the WAHS committee who will inform everyone in due course - probably here or via the WAHS facebook page

Thanks to everyone who sent through letters to the Minister - it really does make a difference.

So to clarify does that put the likely date of publishing around April/May? Is this correct?

New Species
« Reply #47 on: March 24, 2016, 01:57:30 PM »
Finally, after all this waiting, it is official.
Gazette has just come out today, with the new species, and category revisions.


Quick run down of the changes --


Tiliqua scincoides intermedia -- Northern blue tongued skink (Cat 2)
Antaresia childreni -- Children’s python (cat 3)
Emydura victoriae -- North-western red faced turtle (cat 3)
Nephrurus wheeleri -- Banded knob tailed gecko (cat 3)
Dendrelaphis punctulatus -- Common tree snake (cat 4)
Demansia psammophis -- Yellow faced whip snake (cat 5)

Category changes --

King Skink now cat 2
Woma now cat 3
Ridge Tailed Monitor now cat 3
Western Spotted Frog now cat 3
Short tailed pygmy monitor now cat 3
Steindachner’s snake necked turtle now cat 3 (Flat shelled turtle)
Magnificent tree frog now cat 3

Sadly, Egernia depressa still not on the list.
Although, Varanus caudolineatus is off the list, so unless they have been removed, maybe they just made an error with text placement?

Yep at long last. WAHS has been negotiating with DPaW for quite some time and it's good to see it happen. On behalf of the WAHS committee I'd like to acknowledge the efforts of Stephen Wyndham and David Manning who volunteered considerable time and effort to represent WAHS in these discussions. Well done guys!!

Varanus caudolineatus is still on, we received an email about it. The next hurdle in getting these species into captivity is collection, how many takers can and/or will collect them? Much like giving a man a car then denying him a drivers license if previous exclusions prevail. Fingers crossed for a better result this time.

I was wondering if they'd go through today. It was promised but this is DPaW.

We have already submitted the next 6 species about 12 months ago, but there has been advice that the list will not be looked at for another 5 years. Just for everyone's information we will be doing our best to make it easier for DPaW to assess the final 20 species sooner rather than later, they just need some help getting there.

One poll came through today mentioning that labor is ahead, so keep the emails to MPs and Ministers up and express your dissatisfaction with this decision. We have contacted the shadow minister for the environment and he will be putting some questions to the minister and we have asked for FOI documents to assist in understanding the DPaW decision not to look at the list for 5 years and have a number of other FOI applications to submit as we move forward with our lobbying.

It's a slow process but we will get there in the end, we have already out lasted 4 ministers and numerous DEC/DPaW officers so we are a better than even bet at achieving our goal.

Thanks for the encouragement Simon

If anyone is having difficulty sourcing locally the new species they can be imported.
