We noticed that a Wikipedia article for Cambewarra Range Nature Reserve was missing, so we started it. Over the coming months, we'll incrementally add to it.

Parks for sale to save the parks

An article of interest:

"Australia may need to consider selling off some of its National Parks to pay for the conservation they were reserved for according to a professor from the University of Queensland (UQ)."

Subject: Private Forest Unit offers to assist landholders with the management of their private native forests

Dear Catchment Management Authority I write to inquire about the possibility of some income for my land by way of salinity benefits, carbon sequestration, biodiversity enhancement and / or soil and water quality improvement after my 40 years of conservation-based land use. I would like to develop my property for education, Bio Diversity and research, even eco tourism. It is is already a Wildlife Refuge and listed on the NSW BioBanking site but is yet to offset a development. Your website says that the Private Forest Unit offers to assist landholders with the management of their private native forests and I am certainly interested in this with the view to produce environmental credits of some kind.

Thanks and regards, David
