What is a conservation agreement?


A conservation agreement is an agreement between the Australian Government Environment Minister and another person for the protection and conservation of biodiversity in an area of land or sea.
A conservation agreement may provide for:
  • activities that promote the protection and conservation of the following:
    • biodiversity
    • the world heritage values of declared World Heritage properties
    • the National Heritage values of National Heritage places
    • the Commonwealth Heritage values of Commonwealth Heritage places
    • the ecological character of a declared Ramsar wetland
    • the environment, in respect of the impact of a nuclear action
    • the environment in a Commonwealth marine area
    • the environment on Commonwealth land
  • financial, technical or other assistance from the Commonwealth
  • monitoring compliance with the agreement
A conservation agreement can, amongst other things and in addition to those matters listed above, require the owner of a place to:
  • carry out activities that promote the protection and conservation of biodiversity
  • refrain from, or control, activities that may adversely affect the species, ecological community, or habitat, covered by the agreement
  • permit access to the place by specified persons
  • contribute towards the costs incurred under the agreement
  • spend any money paid to them under the agreement in a specified manner
  • forfeit any money paid to them under the agreement if they contravene the agreement
A conservation agreement may include a declaration that actions do not need approval under Part 9 of the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 (EPBC Act).
If the Minister considers that an action taken by a person contravened or may have contravened a provision of Part 3 of the EPBC Act, a conservation agreement may deal with remediation or mitigation measures.
Conservation agreements are legally binding on the Commonwealth, all other parties to the agreement; and any parties that gain an interest in any part of the area after the agreement is entered into.
A notice will be published on this web site if the Minister enters, varies, or terminates a conservation agreement.
The Australian Government Environment Minister will maintain an up-to-date list of conservation agreements that are in force.
