The Conservation Regulator plays an important role in protecting our forests, parks and reserves for future generations. We are responsible for regulating timber harvesting, biodiversity, fire prevention and public land-use.

Each year, we undertake a risk assessment to determine our key regulatory priorities for the year ahead. Elevated public land use, population growth and climate change remain key driving factors of environmental decline, influencing our risks and actions into the future.
