    Industry Analysis & Industry Trends

    The role of the Nature Reserves and Conservation Parks industry is to protect Australia's flora, fauna and natural ecosystems. Australia's network of protected land areas, the National Reserve System (NRS), is managed by industry operators such as government agencies, Indigenous groups and private landholders. National and state parks are predominantly managed by state government agencies, while only six national parks are managed by the Federal Government.

    Industry Report - Industry Locations Chapter

    About 17.9% of Australia's landmass is protected by the NRS, which represents 137.5 million hectares of nature reserves and conservation parks in Australia. Each state's share of protected area depends on the state's size, population density, biodiversity, public pressure to conserve areas and government policies. Western Australia has the greatest share of protected area, due to its total overall landmass and sparse population. The Australian Capital Territory accounts for only 0.1% of the total protected area under the NRS, despite 55.2% of the territory being a terrestrial protected area (the highest portion of any state or territory). Tasmania and South Australia also have high portions of their land protected under the NRS, at 44.1% and 29.9% of each state's landmass respectively.
