The NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) Threatened Species Framework outlines a series of actions to meet our commitment of zero extinctions and restore threatened species populations.
Threatened Species – a framework for zero extinctions
NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service is the first national parks agency in Australia to commit to a zero extinctions target, and one of the first globally.
More than a million species worldwide are threatened with extinction. Our protected areas provide vital refuge from the impacts of feral animals, altered fire regimes, climate change and other threats.
We have a plan to ensure our parks are a permanent stronghold for the conservation and recovery of our threatened species.
Assets of Intergenerational Significance are declared to bolster protections for an area of exceptional value – natural or cultural.
The feral predator-free areas project is one of the most significant ecological restoration initiatives in New South Wales’ history.
National park performance scorecards is a world-leading ecological program that will track 8 NSW national park sites with Ecological Health Performance Scorecards.
Today, we’re at risk of losing nearly 1000 of our state’s native animals and plants. That’s why the NSW Government established Saving our Species. It's the main threatened species conservation program in the state, and the biggest conservation commitment ever made in NSW.
