Foundation chief urges Australians to make the most of ‘Parks for People’
Foundation for National Parks & Wildlife Chief Executive Steve Corbett is urging Australians to enjoy Australia's "amazing national parks and all the fantastic things they have to offer during the holiday season."
In a letter to Foundation supporters, Corbett writes "our parks are wonderful places for recreation, such as walking, bird watching, photography, and sometimes biking, swimming or kayaking.
"They are also ideal places for conservation research and education - and these three themes are what our Summer PAWS 'Parks for People' (newsletter) is all about."
The Foundation for National Parks & Wildlife exists to help save the environment with a vision to be Australia's foremost philanthropic partner for national parks.
The Foundation achieves this by purchasing land for conservation, funding threatened species recovery actions and involving the community in the conservation of Australia's natural and cultural heritage.
It is a not-for-profit, non-controversial, a-political and independent that has created a living legacy over three decades with achievements including:
• Purchasing over 500,000 hectares of habitat and places of natural beauty for 30 national parks and nature reserves;
• Threatened Species Recovery and research for more than 32 species of birds, reptiles, mammals, amphibians and plants. The Foundation has saved the Lord Howe Woodhen, the Malleefowl, the Gould's Petrel, the Yellow-footed Rock Wallaby and other unique species from extinction;
• Cultural Heritage Conservation for more than ten Aboriginal and European historical sites;
• Education and awareness raising for schools and the wider community;
• Walking tracks, viewing platforms, interpretive signage and disabled access in many national parks.
