What we're doing

Park management activities

Bouddi National Park has management strategies in place to protect and conserve the values of this park. Visit the detailed park and fire management documents. Here is just some of the work we’re doing to conserve these values:

Preserving biodiversity

Bouddi National Park embraces efforts to support the biodiversity of its flora and fauna. Field studies and periods of concentrated surveying are carried out in this park in order to maintain this.

Managing weeds, pest animals and other threats

Pests and weeds have a significant impact to the ecosystems within Bouddi National Park. Risk assessments for new and emerging weeds are carried out as an ongoing initiative within this park. As a priority of NPWS, the management of weeds such as bitou bush and boneseed along with pest management of foxes and wild dogs are an important part of the work undertaken in Bouddi to protect the integrity of biodiversity which exists in the area.

Developing visitor facilities and experiences

Bouddi National Park undertakes regular maintenance of its facilities. Replacement and installation of infrastructure around barbecues, picnic and sheltered areas takes place in this park. Improvements to information signage are also a priority.

Conserving our Aboriginal culture

Aboriginal culture is of great value to NPWS, and the conditions of Aboriginal sites and assets are monitored and upgraded as required in Bouddi National Park. In doing this, NPWS works in conjunction with local Aboriginal communities wherever possible.

Managing fire

NSW is one of the most bushfire prone areas in the world as a result of our climate, weather systems, vegetation and the rugged terrain. NPWS is committed to maintaining natural and cultural heritage values and minimising the likelihood and impact of bushfires via a strategic program of fire research, fire planning, hazard reduction, highly trained rapid response firefighting crews and community alerts.
