We have received some good news from the Foundation for National Parks and Wildlife. The Office of Environment and Heritage (formerly the National Parks and Wildlife Service) have agreed,in principle, to accept management of the “Scout Land”. Should the Scouts agree to sell the land to the Foundation it will become national park.
There are still a few challenges we need to meet:
- An agreement with the Scouts to sell the land to the Foundation for National Parks and Wildlife.
- Raising the funds through the community and the government for the purchase. The Foundation will provide seed funding.
The Foundation for National Parks and Wildlife is a charitable organisation which raises funds to purchase land for conservation. The local community has partnered with the foundation to purchase the Scout land for it to be added to the Royal National Park. Donations to the Foundation are tax deductible.
