The Territory Wildlife Park is committed to conservation of Northern Territory biodiversity. Territory Wildlife Park supports Territory (State) and ederal Recovery Plans and various research projects both in house and supported by the Australasian Species Management Plan.
Recovery Plans are multi-disciplinary, multi-faceted and invariably aimed at recovering bio-diversity, whether by ameliorating direct threats to a species, or protecting and recovering habitat. The Burning for Biodiversity Project is an example of such a plan.
Territory Wildlife Park’s role in the NRETA (Natural Recourses Environment and the Arts) programs includes assisting with research, genetic management, field work, quarantine, holding and breeding components as well as providing veterinary expertise and advice on capture and handling techniques.
