What we're doing

Park management activities

Jervis Bay 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

Jervis Bay National Park upholds its biodiversity by protecting vulnerable, threatened and endangered species. Conservation activities are carried out, and include surveying and collecting data on species distribution and population, targeting pest impacts, limiting disturbance from recreational users and undertaking frequent monitoring. NPWS consults on issues potentially affecting biodiversity within the area, and implements programs in relation to this.

Managing weeds, pest animals and other threats

Pests and weeds have a significant impact to the ecosystems within Jervis Bay National Park. Pest reduction of introduced species, such as wild dogs and foxes, as well as risk assessment for new and emerging weeds, is an important part of the work NPWS does to protect the biodiversity values of this national park.

Developing visitor facilities and experiences

NPWS undertakes routine facility maintenance and upgrading in Jervis Bay National Park. Regular maintenance is carried out on park walkways, tracks and other facilities to ensure visitor safety.

Conserving our Aboriginal culture

NPWS works cooperatively with Jerrinja Local Aboriginal Land Council to manage Jervis Bay National Park. Ongoing programs are in place to support this relationship and to preserve the park’s values for future generations.

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.
