Northern Beaches Council is responsible for over 145 bushland and wetland reserves covering an area of 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.
