Warrumbungle National Park
What we're doing
Park management activities
Warrumbungle 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:
NPWS works to protect biodiversity in all parks, and Warrumbungle National Park is no exception. Revegetation programs are ongoing in this park, and can include seed propagation, tree planting, controlled ecological burning, extensive research and monitoring. Fencing and pest management strategies also take place within this park.
Managing weeds, pest animals and other threats
Pests and weeds have a significant impact to the ecosystems within Warrumbungle National Park. NPWS carries out pig, fox, goat, wild dog and weed control as well as risk assessments for new and emerging weeds to protect biodiversity in this park.
The NSW government has an obligation to control feral animal populations in NSW national parks. One of the most effective and humane techniques for achieving this is aerial shooting, carried out by experts who have been accredited by the Feral Animal Aerial Shooting Team (FAAST) training program.
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.
Bushfires are inevitable across fire-prone vegetation types within NSW national parks. NPWS prepares for wildfires by working with other fire agencies, reserve neighbours and the community to ensure protection of life, property and biodiversity. Every park has its own fire management strategy, devised in consultation with partner fire authorities and the community to plan and prioritise fire management.
