What we're doing

Park management activities

Munmorah State Conservation Area 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

Biodiversity is an enduring priority in Munmorah State Conservation Area, and efforts to preserve this are ongoing. NPWS regularly monitors the park’s wildlife, including large and small mammals and migratory birds, ensuring they are unaffected by other park programs. NPWS is committed to plant and animal conservation, and protects threatened, vulnerable and endangered species within all NSW national parks.

Managing weeds, pest animals and other threats

Pests and weeds have a significant impact to ecosystems within Munmorah State Conservation Area. Management of threats, including the removal of bitou bush and boneseed, as well as ongoing risk assessments for new and emerging weeds, is an important part of the work NPWS does to protect the biodiversity values of this park.

Developing visitor facilities and experiences

Visitor safety is paramount to NPWS, and work is ongoing to ensure this in Munmorah State Conservation Area. Safety initiatives are commonly employed around the park’s beaches and recreational facilities, in keeping with peak tourism periods, to make sure visitors have a safe experience in Munmorah State Conservation Area, as well as a memorable one.

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.

Report illegal dumping

It's illegal to dump rubbish, household waste, green waste, construction waste, tyres, or vehicles in NSW national parks and reserves. You can help by reporting it anonymously. If you see illegal waste that has been dumped, or is in the process of being dumped, please take a photo and report it through the Report Illegal Dumping online form, or phone 131 555.
