The Victorian Flora and Fauna Guarantee Act 1988 provides the main legal framework for the protection of Victoria's biodiversity, native plants and animals and ecological communities.
Under the Act, species, ecological communities and potentially threatening processes can be listed. When a listing occurs an action statement must be prepared, which identifies actions that have been or will be taken to conserve the species or community or manage the potentially threatening process.
The Flora and Fauna Guarantee Regulations 2011 (FFG Regulations) were made on 6 December 2011 under section 69 of the Flora and Fauna Guarantee Act 1988 (FFG Act).
