The NSW and Federal Governments have renewed destructive 20 year logging deals know as ‘Regional Forest Agreements’. These agreements exempt logging from national environment laws and have resulted in the deaths of countless native species over the past 20 years, helping drive many – like the koala – to the brink of extinction.
National Parks Association of NSW has a proud conservation history. Over the past 60 years we have been involved in the establishment of many of the national parks and protected areas in NSW today.
Apart from our extensive bushwalking and outdoor activities, NPA also have citizen science, bush regeneration, talks and many other events.
Connecting people with nature is one of the most effective means of changing people’s perception and enthusiasm for the environment. Our citizen science and community engagement initiatives provide a chance for people to get involved directly in conservation.
For over 60 years, NPA has helped preserve our natural heritage and special places. Yet today over 1000 species, the iconic koala included, plus 100 ecological communities in NSW are threatened by land clearing, feral animals, weeds, logging and climate change.
