What we're doing

Park management activities

Paroo-Darling 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

Paroo-Darling National Park is committed to upholding biodiversity and does this by protecting rare, vulnerable, threatened and endangered species. Conservation programs are regularly carried out in this park, and can include intensive research, surveying, data collection on species distribution and population, revegetation, fire management reviews and pest control.

Managing weeds, pest animals and other threats

Pests and weeds have a significant impact to the ecosystems within Paroo-Darling National Park. NPWS carries out risk assesments for new and emerging weeds as well as fox and goat control to protect biodiversity in this park.

Historic heritage in our parks and reserves

NPWS strives to promote awareness and understanding of Paroo-Darling National Park, its historic heritage and abundant natural and cultural assets. NPWS actively supports research efforts and partnerships that assist park management, decision-making and conservation. Research findings, where possible, are interpreted, made available to the public, and implemented as required.

Conserving Aboriginal culture

Paroo-Darling National Park is the traditional home of the Ngiyeempaa and Paakantyi people. Where possible, NPWS works alongside members of these communities to conserve and protect the park’s Aboriginal cultural heritage, and pursues opportunities for increased cultural connection. Research projects and programs to inform and educate park visitors are ongoing. Cultural site information is documented and preserved, and Aboriginal cultural material repatriated.
