NPA recently made a detailed submission on the ten yearly review of the Commonwealth’s nature laws, the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act (EPBC Act).
The National Parks Association of NSW (NPA) has warmly welcomed the renewed focus on environment issues announced today in The Greens’ ‘Protect Nature’ policy.
The policy incorporates initiatives from ‘A Cleaner, Greener NSW’ – the joint policy platform for NSW’s environment groups – including creating the Great Koala National Park, ending native forest logging on public land, protecting national parks, creating new parks and helping farmers to restore landscapes and reverse the impacts of land clearing.
The NSW Election is days away and the future of our natural areas will be in the hands of who we elect to represent us in Parliament and who can form Government.

The National Parks Association of NSW (NPA) has cautiously welcomed today’s announcements by the Berejiklian government, but warns that policy settings must change in order to reverse recent wind-backs in environmental protection.
This morning in Parliament House, NSW environment groups launched ‘A cleaner, greener NSW’—a list of key environment policy asks for the next NSW election and beyond.
The National Parks Association of NSW expressed dismay at yesterday’s announcement that the NSW Government will introduce legislation that will allow feral horses to remain in Kosciuszko National Park.
