Nature Conservation Strategy

The Nature Conservation Strategy 2013-2023 was  tabled in the ACT Legislative Assembly on 13 August 2013 and commenced on 14 November 2013.

The Conservator of Flora and Fauna has prepared the Nature Conservation Strategy 2013–23 under the provisions of the Nature Conservation Act 1980.

The Nature Conservation Strategy will help guide future planning of the Territory’s open spaces, rural areas, urban areas, riverine corridors, and nature reserves, and guide investment of funding and resources in nature conservation.

The Strategy will also improve the opportunities for ACT residents to enjoy parks, reserves and open space, as places for recreation, amenity, self-renewal and education.

The Strategy proposes a number of actions designed to support the ACT’s diverse volunteer base, that every year put in tens of thousands of hours of unpaid work to help manage the ACT’s natural areas.
