ANALYSIS OF BIODIVERSITY CONSERVATION ACT1The government of New South Wales changes the managing practices done to protect and enhance the biodiversity at New South Wales. The new reforms are prepared by best aspects of present programs and policies and the new reform addresses weakness of present system. The recommendation given by independent biodiversity legislations is implemented in the reform. The new biodiversity conservation act and amendment in the present laws will acts as a supporting tool which enables the best available science and data related to the biodiversity. The reforms help to modernize the legislation, policy, financial framework and institutions for the conservation of biodiversity. The reforms facilitate conservation of biodiversity and sustainable development ecologically. The total investments done for implementation is $340 Million which includes prioritized private land conservation program, species-saving program, and new strategic program. The cost of a species-saving program is $100 Million and $240 Million for new strategic and private land conservation program (Mitchell et al., 2015). The investment is for five years. The aim of reform is to provide benefit to all the country with long lasting impact. The act of conservation of biodiversity repeals the threatened species conservation act 1995 and the provisions of plants at the national park and wildlife act 1974.The purpose of the act is to sustain a healthy, resilient and healthy environment for the well-being of the country. The reformis consistent with the ecologically sustainable development principles which include the ecological integrity at bioregional and state level and biodiversity conservation, provides sustainable development ecologically and sharing of knowledge for the improvement of aboriginal and local knowledge which affects the actions of conservation. The purpose of reform is to achieve through facilitating prioritize investment for the conservation of private land for biodiversity conservation which increases the services of the ecosystem. The biodiversity values for the purpose of the act include integrity of vegetation, sustainability of vegetation and values

ANALYSIS OF BIODIVERSITY CONSERVATION ACT2of biodiversity. The act is applied to the animals and plants but not on the fishes and vegetation of marine. The reform removes the restrictions on the clearance of land and threatens biodiversity notwithstanding the claims.The aim of reform is to facilitate sustainable development ecologically and biodiversity conservation. The aim can be fluffed when the knowledge of farmers is completely related to the importance of native vegetation, no effects of spillover from the clearance of land and the ownersof land must take care of the land in the long term and also considers the income earned. The land clearance is increased by the government which leads to increase the emission of carbon and threat increment to endangered species. The new approach is derived from economic theory. The reform repeals native vegetation act, 2003 which restricts the clearance of land and government has implemented a market-based approach which enables the farmers to clear the land flexibly (Productivity Commission et al., 2004). The new biodiversity conservation act applies for risk-based approach and exemption on land clearance is given by NVA. The land clearance is allowed at low-risk level, and the approval is required from local land services. The market of biodiversity is used to offset the impact of land clearance at the risk of a higher level (McKenney et al., 2010). The landowners who clear the land that has to pay an amount in the biodiversity trust fund or buy from the scheme of bio-banking. Under the native vegetation act the clearance of land has to be offset by environment condition improvement of same land on other area which enables the protection of biodiversity at local level whereas the new approach has increased the use of biodiversity markets which enable the offsetting at state level, and it lost the local biodiversity (Priest et al., 2014). The government has argued that the current system is not delivering the approach. The NVA wasimplemented in 2004 which reduce the land clearance from 21,500 hectare to 16,000 hectare per
