Closed for comment


The Northern Territory Government invites you to comment on the first ever draft management program for Terminalia ferdinandiana, known more commonly as Kakadu Plum.

Aboriginal people have a long history of medicinal and customary use of Kakadu Plum, a small to medium sized tree endemic to the monsoonal tropics of northern Australia, which is becoming increasingly commercialised due to its extraordinary health benefits.

The tree is well known for having high levels of ascorbic acid (Vitamin C) and is also documented as having high levels of Ellagic Acid, which has anti-oxidant values; making it an attractive natural ingredient for its nutraceutical, pharmaceutical, anti-microbial and preservative values.

The document has been prepared in partnership with Charles Darwin University and EcOz Environmental consulting.

Consultation on new environment protection legislation commences

The Minister for Environment and Natural Resources has announced the release of the draft environment protection Bill and draft environment protection Regulations for public consultation.

This draft legislation introduces reforms to the Territory’s environmental impact assessment and approvals framework.

The draft Bill, draft Regulations and a suite of supporting information is available from the environmental regulatory reform consultation website.

Work to reform the Territory’s legislative framework for managing wastes, pollution, land clearing and the environmental impacts of mining is continuing.

Draft legislation to deliver improvements to that framework is expected to be released during 2019.
