At a national level, this Department consults regularly with stakeholders including the major non-Government farming and conservation groups and other government departments. For consultation at a local level, owners of lands and/or rights in designated areas are identified and notified of proposals that may affect them and invited to attend public consultation meetings to develop conservation plans for the sites. The Department also places advertisements locally in press and on radio to maximise awareness of any new statutory proposals.
