Muttonbird Island Nature Reserve
What we're doing
Park management activities
Muttonbird Island Nature Reserve has management strategies in place to protect and conserve the values of this park. Visit the detailed park and fire management documents.
Muttonbird Island Nature Reserve strives to protect its native plants and animals from that which threatens their survival. Conservation and control measures are in operation in this park, and work to minimise impacts from visitors and introduced species. Recovery plans are implemented as required and their effects monitored carefully by NPWS staff.
Uniting technology with the vast collection of information on biodiversity in NSW, BioNet is a valuable database open to any user. From individual plant sightings to detailed scientific surveys, it offers a wealth of knowledge about ecology and threatened species in NSW.
Developing visitor facilities and experiences
Muttonbird Island Nature Reserve maintains its facilities and infrastructure to ensure memorable experiences. Programs to maintain, refurbish or upgrade the park’s visitor offerings are in place within this park.
Conserving our Aboriginal culture
Aboriginal culture is of great value to NPWS and the wider community, and the condition of Muttonbird Island Nature Reserve’s significant Aboriginal sites and assets is monitored and conserved. In doing this, NPWS invests in staff and contractor training and liaises with the local Aboriginal community wherever possible. NPWS review of interpretation and signage projects is ongoing.
