National Parks and Wildlife Act

The National Parks and Wildlife Act consolidates and amends the law relating to the establishment, preservation and management of national parks, historic sites and certain other areas and the protection of certain fauna, native plants and Aboriginal objects. The purposes of the act include conserving nature, for example conservation of habitat, biological diversity, landforms; conserving objects, places, or features of cultural value; and providing for the management of land. This is to be achieved by applying the principles of ecologically sustainable development.
