The Wildlife Conservation Act 1950 is an act of the Western Australian Parliament that provides the statute relating to conservation and legal protection of flora and fauna.
The Act is supplemented periodically by Notices, which are lists of species subject to protection under the Act, e.g. the Wildlife Conservation (Specially Protected Fauna) Notice 2008(2). The lists are arranged in Schedules according to level of vulnerability. Schedule 1 is "Fauna that is rare or is likely to become extinct" or "Extant taxa"; Schedule 2 is "Fauna presumed to be extinct" or "Taxa presumed to be extinct".

“What distinguishes the majority of men from the few is their inability to act according to their beliefs.”
—Henry Miller (18911980)
“Russian forests crash down under the axe, billions of trees are dying, the habitations of animals and birds are layed waste, rivers grow shallow and dry up, marvelous landscapes are disappearing forever.... Man is endowed with creativity in order to multiply that which has been given him; he has not created, but destroyed. There are fewer and fewer forests, rivers are drying up, wildlife has become extinct, the climate is ruined, and the earth is becoming ever poorer and uglier.”
—Anton Pavlovich Chekhov (18601904)
