Threatened Fauna Adviser 2014 User Manual (PDF)

The Threatened Fauna Adviser (TFA) is a decision-support tool intended for use by those conducting biodiversity evaluations as part of the development of forest practices plans (FPPs) for activities covered by the Tasmanian forest practices system. The TFA will be used in accordance with the procedures for the management of threatened species agreed between the Department of Primary Industries, Parks, Water & Environment (DPIPWE) and the Forest Practices Authority (FPA), under section D3.3 of the Forest Practices Code (for a full copy of the 'agreed procedures', follow this link).

The primary objective for the management of threatened species in areas covered by the forest practices system is to contribute to the maintenance of habitat and populations of threatened species throughout their ranges and over time. The TFA provides the planner with recommended management actions (recommendations) to use in development of management prescriptions for Forest Practices Plans.

The Threatened Fauna Adviser 2002 has been revised in accordance with the procedures agreed between the FPA and the Department of Primary Industry, Parks, Water and Environment (read the agreed procedures).  Comments from users of the Threatened Fauna Adviser and from the public are welcome and should be addressed to info@fpa.tas.gov.au.
