Protecting the land we value most

NSW is home to some of the most treasured wildlife, natural environments and productive land, and we are rightly proud of that.

Native trees and plants are vital for the health of our environment, supporting native animals and agriculture and protecting soil and water.

We have to work together to protect the land and animals we value most and to keep our rivers flowing and healthy.

The Biodiversity Conservation Act 2016  and Local Land Services Amendment Act 2016 take advantage of the best available science

and data and deliver a modern approach to land management and biodiversity conservation in NSW.
