Description

This dataset is from a series of layers showing habitat for terrestrial mammals, reptiles, birds and invertebrates listed as threatened in the ACT under the Nature Conservation Act 2014. Habitat areas are based on verified records, and vegetation type and extent. Habitat is displayed for the following speciesGrassland earless dragon; Pink-tailed worm lizard; Striped legless lizard; Rosenberg's MonitorSuperb parrot (breeding habitat); Spotted-tailed Quoll; Northern Corroboree Frog; Golden Sun Moth; Perunga Grasshopper;Kicking Peacock Spider; Canberra Raspy Cricket; Key's Matchstick GrasshopperOther species considered threatened/important/rare in the ACT include: Brush-tailed Rock Wallaby (Petrogale penicillata), Broad-toothed Rat (Mastacomys fuscus), Smoky Mouse (Pseudomys fumeus), Platypus (Ornithorhynchus anatinus), Koala (Phascolarctos cinereus) – Habitat data is considered deficient for these species, or are considered extinct in the ACT, and thus habitats have not been mapped. Records of these species, including historic, are kept and maintained in the ACT Wildlife Atlas. The aquatic invertebrate species Murray crayfish (Euastacus armatus) is listed under aquatic spatial datasets.Birds: Comprehensive threatened bird records are kept by the Canberra Ornithologists Group (COG). Requests for bird data should be directed to COG. http://canberrabirds.org.au/More information on threatened species in the ACT can be found at: http://www.environment.act.gov.au/cpr/conservation_and_ecological_communities/threatened_species_factsheetsUpdates: These datasets are static but may be updated if known habitat extents contract or expand or more detailed field work to map habitat is undertaken. Last updated May 2016.Fit for purpose: Note that these layers show areas of known habitat. They come from a number of different sources and are only indicative.These datasets may not reflect the full distribution of species in the ACT. For environmental impact assessment investigations, further survey may be required. Contact Conservation Research, EPD for more information (13 22 81). Exact location of some species may be withheld due to risks of disturbance and collection as per the ACT Government Sensitive Ecological Spatial Data Policy (2016 in pub).Disclaimer: While all care is taken to ensure accuracy, the ACT Government does not warrant that the layers are free from error. © ACT Government. Creative Common By Attribution 4.0 (Australian Capital Territory), Please read Data Terms and Conditions statement before  data use.
