About this fact sheet
Since European settlement, most of the New England Peppermint (Eucalyptus nova-anglica) Grassy Woodlands ecological community has been cleared or degraded by pasture improvement and heavy grazing. The small amount that remains in good condition is now protected under Australia’s national environment law, the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 (EPBC Act), as a critically endangered ecological community.
