  • To partner with traditional owners to support the management of WONP in a culturally sensitive and eclogically appropriate way
  • To connect people with nature and rewild individuals to enable all people to be part of the solution to biodiversity loss through the impact of climate change and other factors
  • To celebrate and enjoy the uniqueness of the WONP ecosystems and help sustain these qualities for future generations
  • To provide a community voice in support of WONP
