Description: This dataset represents areas recommended for conservation as determined by the Environmental Protection Authority, Western Australia. *** Note: An estimated 15% of areas have differences between 'systems' dataset and publication boundaries. A review is underway and until such time that it is completed, the dataset should be used with caution and with reference to the 1993 Red Book publication. Specific advice should be sought from the Terrestrial Ecosystems Branch for detailed matters. [rod n, july 2009] *** The concept of Proposed Conservation Reserves by the EPA began in the early 1970s and has evolved as areas through a series of publications. The State of Western Australia was divided into 12 broad environmental 'system' areas, each reviewed and assessed for areas of potential conservation reserve. The first series of publications released in the 1970's were the "green books' as they had green covers. A second series of publications were released in the 1980's and known as the 'Red books' (red covers). The last authoritative publication was the 'Red Book Status Report on the Implementation of Conservation Reserves for Western Australia', 1993. Digital versions of the boundaries were established in 1995, until then the Proposed Conservation Reserves existed only in paper map form. System 6 areas were used as the basis for the Bushforever programme (Dept of Planning and Infrastructure), reserving areas for native vegetation preservation in the metropolitan area. Proposed Conservation Reserve or 'Red Book' areas are used within many planning process and environmental assessments. It is important to note that the 'Red Book' initiatives have been adopted and implemented with wide variation by Government agencies. Subsequent management plans, as well as incorporating many of these earlier recommendations, have also revisited and redefined boundaries from those that were originally identified in the "Red Book".
