Natural Resource Management in Western Australia


Vision for natural resource management in Western Australia (WA):

Western Australia's vast landscape and seascape, intricate web of biodiversity

and other natural resources are conserved, managed and used sustainably for the

common good, and the community is involved in management and planning

processes that are transparent and visionary.

State Sustainability Strategy 2003

WA has some of the world's most remarkable natural landscapes, waterways and marine environments. These environments support a diverse range of flora and fauna, many of which are endemic, found nowhere else in the world.

The diverse nature of WA's natural resources means that there are many individuals, regional and community groups, industries, organisations, government departments and committees contributing to natural resource management in WA.
