NSW National Parks launches Wild, Wild World website
In support of the International Year of Biodiversity (IYB2010) – a global celebration of the variety of life on Earth – NSW National Parks is very pleased to introduce Wild, Wild World – a new website championing the amazing natural diversity right here in our State's parks.
The Wild, Wild World website is your window to the wonderful world of animals, plants and cultural heritage that you can explore in our national parks through exciting interactive park tours, guided walks and expert talks with our Discovery rangers and commercial tour operators.
You'll find a huge range of activities for all ages in national parks around the State, like searching for bandicoots in Lane Cove National Park, visiting waterfalls by moonlight in Blue Mountains National Park, and a kids' bush puppet show in the Warrumbungles. Bush tucker and medicine await at Bongil Bongil National Park, there are snorkelling adventures at Merimbula, a family biodiversity day at Fitzroy Falls in Morton National Park, and a whole lot more.
The launch of the website also marks the introduction of NSW National Parks new Wild Journeys – a series of special tours available in remote, rarely-visited or restricted areas of national parks.
You can become a fan of Wild, Wild World on Facebook, or submit your favourite NSW national parks images to the Wild, Wild World gallery via Flickr.
IYB2010 is a worldwide call to action to help safeguard our planet's natural diversity. Right here in NSW, there are many plant and animal species, like the brush-tailed rock wallaby, that face extinction without the help of the NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service and other conservation organisations and volunteers. As well as getting up close and personal with our wonderful wild things through park tours, you can also help save our threatened and vulnerable species by donating to conservation efforts via the Wild, Wild World website and the Foundation for National Parks and Wildlife.
We invite you to check out the new Wild, Wild World website and plan your next NSW national park adventure – www.wildwildworld.com.au
