What we're doing

Park management activities

Pambula-Haycock area is in Ben Boyd National Park. Ben Boyd 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

We conduct annual surveys for shorebirds along the beaches and do fox baiting to protect nesting birds. We’ve worked on a translocation project for the endangered green and golden bell frog and arboreal (tree-dwelling) species such as the yellow-bellied glider. We also work with land managers to ensure wildlide corridors in this area are maintained.

Developing visitor facilities and experiences

We’re working closely with the Eden Local Aboriginal Land Council to help develop the Bundian Way walking track.

Managing weeds pest animals and other threats

We undertake regular weed management in the Pambula-Haycock area. In particular, sea spurge along the beaches and arram lilly near Haycock Point.

Conservation program

Fox threat abatement plan

Since the fox was introduced to Australia in the 1870s, its impact on the environment has been negative. Foxes have contributed to the decline and extinction of a large range of native Australian animals.

Managing fire

We manage fire to not only protect life and property within and adjacent to the park but also to protect the park’s biodiversity. This includes conservation of rare, threatened plant and animal species.

Understanding landscapes and geology

The park’s contrasting landforms help us understand the role played by rocks in forming this unique landscape. Ben Boyd National Park divides quite neatly into 2 geological zones: sedimentary basement rock in the north and much older metamorphic rock in the south. Important geological features in the park are protected and any work is undertaken in a way that minimises impacts on fossils and other geological features.
