Sites of Significance for Rainforest

This layer identifies areas defined as sites of significance for rainforest initially delineated by David Cameron in 1990 as part of the statewide rainforest survey and subsequently reviewed by Bill Peel in 1999. This revised 2012 version is necessitated by changes in the integrity of selected sites or site values as a consequence of fire or harvesting history in the period 1990-2012 which warrants a re-evaluation of the boundary or priority zoning of such sites.

Priority classification: 1 highest priority area through to 5 lower priority area.

Additional fields to describe Priority, Significance, Site_ID were added on 27 Feb 2019.
