In the first Park Watch edition for 2021 we summarise several important reports that we have recently released –  one on the importance of protecting key refuges in the aftermath of the 2019–20 bushfires; one on the citizen science discovery of Powerful Owls in Mount Cole; and another on the economic case for new national parks in the Central West.

We also examine multiple topics of inappropriate development plans and failing nature laws.

For something lighter, check out our new regular feature ‘Explorer’s Corner’ where we will share tips and tricks for getting into nature.

As always we cover the most important issues concerning our national parks and other natural areas across our state.
