PINK-TAILED WORM LIZARD PROTECTION AND MANAGEMENT PLANWednesday, 18 July, 2012
The Pink-tailed Worm-lizard (Aprasia parapulchella) is listed as 'vulnerable' under the EPBC Act, and we have identified a number of this species on a section of the Googong site. CIC have committed to establish, rehabilitate and dedicate to public ownership, a 52 ha fenced Conservation Area to protect these species, as well as implement management measures to enhance the long-term habitat.
Googong Township Pty Ltd submitted a protection and management plan for the Pink-tailed Worm Lizard, which details the establishment and management of the Conservation Area. This plan was recently approved by the Department of Sustainability, Environment, Water, Population and Communities, and will be implemented in due course.
