Dear Bob,

I guess it depends on exactly what you are after in an 'endangered species' list. There are so many variations depending on whether a species is state or nationally threatened, and there can be a number of different lists for either. If you are after an official list of current threatened species in Australia, have a look at the Environment Australia web site:

This site contains a list of all threatened species (i.e. Extinct in the wild, Critically endangered, Endangered, Vulnerable and Conservation dependent) as listed under the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999.

Bob, I assume you still live in Victoria so if you want a list of Vic. threatened species, try:

then follow the prompts to plants and animals, native plants and animals, threatened species etc.

Hope this helps.

Best wishes,

Can someone direct me to where I can find (preferably via the Internet) an
"official" listing of all Endangered and Threatened Australian Species?
