      Natural resource management approaches that deliver biodiversity conservation remain elusive, with evidence of a persistent implementation gap between biodiversity science and conservation projects. Scenarios have been identified as potentially useful in addressing the complex issues underlying this implementation gap, but have been infrequently applied to biodiversity conservation. Our Shire's Biodiversity. Our Shire has an extremely high level of biodiversity, with our region is known to support high numbers of rare or threatened plants and animals, with approximately 70 plant species and 90 animal species recognised as vulnerable or endangered.. A combination of high rainfall, mild climatic conditions, and variation in topography, geology, and altitude interact to.   The ecological impacts of human activities in tropical forests vary depending on forest type, and the nature and intensity of the activity. Understanding the varied impacts of different kinds of use on different kinds of forest will be important for the development of .

World Heritage status was declared inand on 21 May the Wet Inscription: (12th Session). The Wet Tropics is only a tiny fragment of the Australian landmass but it is of exceptional biological and human value.

It is a productive region of great beauty containing unique refugial rainforest dating back to Gondwanaland. Much of the forest not cleared for agriculture and towns is now in a World Heritage Area. This book traces the evolution of human values, attitudes, uses and public.

The Australian Wet Tropics biogeographic region is known for its ancient World Heritage rainforests and its proximity to the Great Barrier Reef.

It includes ancient mountains and floodplains, and diverse wetlands that support high biodiversity and have important socio-economic and ecological values. The Wet Tropics of Queensland is a UNESCO World Heritage Site which is in a narrow strip along the east coast of Queensland, Australia. It starts just north of Townsville and continues to just south of Cooktown, a distance of about km ( mi).This is an area ofha (2, acres) in separate blocks of land which includes 41 national parks covering, ha (, acres).Inscription: (12th Session).

Reason number one, natural beauty, can be easily met if an area looks nice. Australia’s wet tropics easily meets this criterion because the wet tropics have beautiful views of the mountains and the coast, there are beautiful trees and other plants, waterfalls, beautiful animals, and more.
