Northern Beaches Council is responsible for over 300 bushland and wetland reserves covering around 1700ha. 

The primary purpose of these reserves is for the conservation of natural values; however they are also important from a social, cultural, recreational and historical perspective.

These reserves are home to an array of native flora and fauna often providing the last remaining refuges for threatened species.

Many bushland reserves are Wildlife Protection Areas and have a Plan of Management in place.

Illegal dumping - dumping rubbish or garden waste in bushland reserves may lead to fines and penalties.  Report illegal dumping
