The role of the Nature Parks and Conservation Reserves industry is to protect Australia's flora, fauna and natural ecosystems. Australia's network of protected areas is called the National Reserve System (NRS), and is managed by industry operators such as government agencies, indigenous groups and private landholders. The industry's largest segment, national and state parks, is predominantly managed by state government agencies, with only six national parks managed by the Commonwealth Director of National Parks.
Government bodies and companies in this industry operate nature reserves and conservation parks for the preservation of flora and fauna in their natural environment. The industry includes national parks, state parks, tourist caves and other parks managed primarily by local, state and federal government bodies.
The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
