National parks seeks comments
IF you think no one wants to hear your opinion then you couldn't be more wrong.
The NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service is seeking comments on its Living Parks Strategy.
This new initiative protects and conserves the natural and cultural values of our parks, while ensuring that opportunities for visitors are enhanced.
"Twenty-one million people visit national parks every year and our parks attract visitors to Australia, Sydney and regional NSW, all of which assists the economy," NPWS head Dr Tony Fleming said.
"Living Parks identifies ways the NPWS can protect and conserve park values, improve visitor experiences, enhance community health and well-being, and bring economic benefits to communities."
Dr Fleming said our parks are living parks. People visit them to experience our natural and cultural heritage.
"In addition to helping us protect those natural and cultural values, Living Parks will help preserve our parks for future generations to enjoy that experience, too," he said.
