The Department of Environment and Conservation (Western Australia) was established on 1 July 2006, bringing together the Department of Environment and the Department of Conservation and Land Management.
The department has distinct Government responsibilities for implementing Government policy within that community.
DEC WA has statutory responsibility for managing land, including State forest, timber reserves and formal conservation reserves, and is the lead biodiversity conservation agency in the State.
DEC WA undertakes management of, and research into, ecosystems including wetlands, revegetation including broadscale revegetation such as using oil mallees, and threatened species and threatening processes. The website has many reports on these issues - search for 'vegetation'.
DEC provides advice on tree planting for enhancement of nature conservation values and for farm enhancement,and also has information on fire management, off-reserve conservation, and forest management. Details of DEC's parks and reserves management plans are available on the website.
