In essence, a substantial number of obligate marine, wide-ranging off-shore
sea birds that occur up to 80km off the coast of Newcastle and are not directly
associated with coal-fired industrial heartland of Newcastle (i.e. likely
to occur across other off shore areas of NSW) are included in the list.

May be the Liverpool Plains is looking as an 'important region ecologically'
after all.

We would accept records from out to about 80km out, which is where the
shelf ends.  But most of the albatrosses, prions, shearwaters etc that
are on our list can be seen from land if you look often enough, or by
people out fishing not far from shore.
