Protected - National Parks Association of Queensland

    NPAQ acknowledges the Traditional Owners of the Queensland National Park Estate and strongly supports co-stewardship with Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service.

NPAQ’s quarterly magazine, Protected has in-depth articles on national parks and conservation as well as regular features focusing on an individual Queensland parks, a walk within our parks and a particular wildlife species or ecosystem that benefits from the protected area estate. The National Park Experience offers personal reflection on why our parks must be valued and we also turn the spotlight onto a QPWS ranger every issue.
