Summary

The Maria Island National Park and Ile Des Phoques Nature Reserve Management Plan 1998 was produced in accordance with the National Parks and Wildlife Act 1970. The management plan is comprised of three parts.

Part B sets out the values, significance, goals and management objectives. Part C sets out the prescriptions for management necessary for achieving the management objectives for the Park and the Reserve. Parts B and C constitute the plan as required by the Act. Appendices do not form part of the statutory management plan. The plan may only be varied in accordance with the procedures set out in Sections 19 and 20 of the National Parks and Wildlife Act 1970 and, in any case, will be reviewed five years after approval of the plan by the Governor.
