Media report shows that even modest efforts to protect nature are sacrificed at the altar of ideology.
The National Parks Association of NSW (NPA) is calling for urgent political efforts to reach bipartisanship on protecting nature for future generations after this morning’s revelations in the Sydney Morning Herald.
The National Parks Association of NSW (NPA) warmly welcomes NSW Labor’s commitment for a new national park in south-west Sydney.
NPA included a proposal for protected areas in south-west Sydney in its ’50 Parks’ proposal, released late 2017 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the National Parks and Wildlife Service. A new protected area is vital in order to protect threatened ecological communities and threated species—including koalas—in the face of accelerating development.
Freedom of information documents show we’re facing a koala colony wipe-out unless the government implements the Great Koala National Park and other key reserves
The National Parks Association of NSW (NPA) is renewing calls for the NSW Government to create the Great Koala National Park after documents obtained under freedom of information show that it’s the most important public land in NSW for koalas.

Citizen scientists from all over Sydney have been collecting data on the charismatic Eastern Water Dragon with ROARING success! Water Dragons are an impressive semi-aquatic lizard found near fresh water and patches of bushland along the eastern coast of Australia. Full of character, and found at sizes up to a metre long, they are a much loved native species and perfect candidate to study the effect of urbanisation on native species. The ‘Dragons of Sydney’ project aimed to inspire, educate and increase community involvement in the conservation of Eastern Water Dragons.
