ACT Nature Conservation Strategy 2013 - 2023
The aim of the Strategy is to provide biodiversity rich, resilient landscapes stretching from the inner city to the mountains, where well-functioning ecosystems can meet the needs of people and the environment. The strategy helps guide future planning of the Territory’s open spaces, rural areas, urban areas, riverine corridors, and nature reserves, and guide investment of funding and resources in nature conservation. The strategy also improves the opportunities for ACT residents to enjoy parks, reserves and open space, as places for recreation, amenity, self-renewal and education. It is designed to support the ACT’s diverse volunteer base, which put in tens of thousands of hours of unpaid work every year to help manage the ACT’s natural areas.
