Biodiversity, conservation and land use research

The focus of this priority area is to protect biodiversity and support healthy and resilient landscapes and ecosystems.

Our science and research informs decisions about land use management for ecological, cultural, social and economic sustainability.

We collect and share data and information to monitor and report on the health of the NSW environment.

Through this work we help:

  • conserve and protect biodiversity
  • monitor and manage threatened species
  • reduce or manage threats such as pests, weeds and fire
  • understand the effects of land use change and help ecosystems adapt to change
  • restore ecosystems and improve understanding of biodiversity
  • improve land management.
