Fauna Impact Statements (FISs) are now required in association with all actions in New South Wales which are, considered likely to “take or kill” “endangered” fauna. In this paper it is argued that “take or kill” is equivalent to having a significant impact on either individuals or the habitat of a species of endangered fauna. In addition, I review the context in which these FISs are required and consider the adequacy of FISs that have so far been produced as well as potential improvements in the FIS process.
