Overview

Translocation of threatened species is often proposed as mitigation, compensation or offset for impacts on a species or its habitat as a result of actions referred under the EPBC Act. Less commonly, translocation may be an action referred in its own right. This Policy Statement provides information relevant to considering such proposals in connection with a referral under the EPBC Act.
