More news from the NSW woodlands.  In one sense the news is bad but putting 
another spin on it could be considered as good news in so much that the problem 
has been officially recognised.  Now comes the time to do something about it!

The NSW Scientific Committee has made a Preliminary Determination to support a 
proposal to list the following species as a Vulnerable Species on Schedule 2 of 
the Threatened Species Conservation Act.

Hooded Robin (south-eastern form) Melanodryas cucullata cucullata
Grey-crowned Babbler (eastern subspecies) Pomatastomus temporalis temporalis
Diamond Firetail Stagonopleura guttata
Brown Treecreeper (eastern subspecies) Climacteris picummus victoriae
Black-chinned Honeyeater (eastern subspecies) Melithreptus gularis gularis
Speckled Warbler Pyrrholaemus sagittata

These Preliminary Determinations are to be gazetted today and are now on 
display until 22-06-2001 at which time public submissions will be assessed 
prior to the final determination.  The NSW Scientific Committee at NSW NPWS, 
Hurstville will undoubtably be able to provide more information on how to view 
these determinations.
