Wilderness Sample Clauses

Wilderness. Using the Australian Heritage Commission wilderness methodology this project will update the National Wilderness Inventory (NWI) analysis in the region to allow the delineation of places with high wilderness quality utilising improved disturbance information from old growth forest survey and cultural heritage assessments. Additional information such as better definition of current roading will be incorporated into the analysis. Outputs will be a map of all areas with wilderness quality and size above agreed thresholds; a map of areas of wilderness quality within the region identifying rational boundaries for protection of wilderness values; and rational boundaries options for wilderness areas.
Wilderness. Issue 46.1: Adequacy of the analysis of the effects of noise from operations at the Jackson Hole Airport on the wilderness experience. Comment: Part of the idea of national parks is to preserve "wilderness." Quiet is part of wilderness, and air traffic everywhere is an increasing source of noise pollution (0508.001).
Wilderness. 11 (a) MOUNT OLYMPUS WILDERNESS ADDITION AND BOUNDARY ADJUSTMENT.— 12 (b) Section 102(a) of the Utah Wilderness Act of 1984 (Public Law 98-428; 98 Stat. 1658;
Wilderness. This assessment will include wilderness areas identified under the provisions of the NSW Wilderness Act 1987 in addition to the National Wilderness Inventory (NWI) analysis of wilderness in the region. The NWI analysis will be refined by the application of disturbance information from old growth forest surveys, improved information on the nature of road access and additional information of relevance. Outputs will be: a map of all wilderness areas identified under the provisions of the Wilderness Act 1987 and of NWI wilderness quality and size above agreed thresholds; a map identifying rational boundaries for protection of wilderness values; and a map of rational boundary options for wilderness areas.
Wilderness. Almost all (99%) of Wilderness, as defined in the JANIS Reserve Criteria (ie National Wilderness Inventory (Lesslie and Maslen 1995) minimum rating 12 in patches greater than 8 000ha), in the Eden region is protected within Dedicated Reserves under this Agreement. Management of CAR Values Management plans identified in Section 2.3 of the New South Wales Eden Region Forest Agreement for Dedicated Reserve and Informal Reserve elements of the CAR Reserve System will clearly identify the CAR Values and the actions being taken in each reserve to appropriately manage and conserve those values. ATTACHMENT 2 (clauses 34, 46(g), 62, 95.8) THREATENED FLORA, FAUNA AND COMMUNITIES Both Parties recognise the range of mechanisms to conserve the habitat of endangered and vulnerable flora and fauna in the Eden region. These include: (i) protection within the CAR Reserve System; (ii) protection of key habitat components using the Integrated Forestry Operations Approval; (iii) protection of key habitats such as rainforest, heaths, swamps and other wet communities, rocky outcrops and rare ecological communities; and (iv) the development of Recovery Plans for species, populations and communities listed under the Threatened Species Conservation Act 1995 (NSW) and the Endangered Species Protection Act 1992 (C’wth). Key species are protected by a combination of reservation and prescription. Current priorities for developing Recovery Plans for threatened forest dependent fauna and flora for the next five years are provided in Table 1. Parties note that the list at Table 1. is indicative only and timeframes are dependent upon funding. These priorities may change and new priorities may arise in response to additional information, funding etc. Where Recovery Plans under the Threatened Species Conservation Act 1995 (NSW) meet the requirements of the Endangered Species Protection Act 1992 (C’wth), the Commonwealth will consider adopting them under Section 46 of the Endangered Species Protection Act 1992 (C’wth). Threatening Processes Threat Abatement Plans under the Endangered Species Protection Act 1992 (C’wth) for Predation by the Feral Cat and Predation by the European Red Fox (Vulpes vulpes) have been finalised and approved by the Minister. Other priorities for Threat Abatement Plans under the Act include Competition and Land Degradation by the European Rabbit, Competition and Land Degradation by the Feral Goat, and Dieback caused by the root-rot fungus (Phytopthera cinnamoni).

Wilderness. In the Southern RFA, 93.2 per cent of wilderness as defined in the JANIS Reserve Criteria, is protected within dedicated reserves. More than half the remaining wilderness outside dedicated reserves is on freehold or leasehold land. Threatened species and forest communities More than 165 threatened or regionally significant forest-dependent plant species and 69 animal species were assessed in the Southern region. Animals included the Heath Monitor, Giant Burrowing Frog, Greater Glider, Sooty Owl, Brown Treecreeper and the Tiger Quoll. Plants included the Wee Jasper Grevillea, Phantom Wattle, Araluen Gum, Nowra Heath Myrtle and the Illawarra Greenhood. Under the RFA, these species and others will be protected within the reserve system and through management prescriptions. Priorities for developing Recovery Plans for threatened forest-dependent flora and fauna are provided in Attachment 3 of the RFA. National estate The RFA has added to our knowledge of the region’s national estate values and improves its protection and management through a combination of reservation (dedicated and informal) and management prescriptions off reserve. See Attachment 4 of the RFA. World heritage Both governments agree that any further world heritage nominations will come from within the CAR Reserve System. European and natural heritage The RFA has greatly improved our knowledge of forest places with historic, social or aesthetic values. Forestry, mining, pastoralism and other activities have left their mark on the landscape with sawmills, sleeper cutter sites, gold mines and bullock tracks. Sites in the Southern region of particular significance to regional communities include the Kiandra Area, Kiandra Court House/Chalet, the Hume and Hovell Walking Track, Mt Dromedary (including the gold mining sites) and Wog Wog Track and Yards. The reservation of all or significant portions of the Budawang Range, Hawkesbury Sandstone areas, Kioloa and Tallaganda State Forests, and the expanded link between Kosciusko National Park to Namadgi National Park, increase the number of significant sites of natural heritage in the region. Statewide Guidelines for the Management of Cultural Heritage Values and Places consistent with national and international guidelines have been developed. These will be the framework for management, identification and protection of cultural values.‌ Aboriginal heritage The RFA contains a package of measures for implementation by NSW to ensure the appropriate managemen...

Wilderness. Park shall mean a roadless area retained in a natural condition for the preservation of its ecological environment and scenic features including its gardens. NOW THIS AGREEMENT WITNESSES that in consideration of the sum of ONE ($1.00) DOLLAR and other valuable consideration given by each party to the other the sufficiency and receipt of which is hereby acknowledged, the parties covenant and agree each with the other as follows:
Wilderness. Both the State and Commonwealth Governments have requirements to assess wilderness. Wilderness assessments in the region under the NSW Wilderness Act are now complete with 16 study areas totalling 316,400 hectares found to meet the wilderness criteria. These areas are termed provisionally identified wilderness and are in addition to the 481,650 hectares of declared wilderness in the region. Provisionally identified wilderness areas were considered in developing the options. NSW Government decisions on wilderness declaration will follow public exhibition of the assessment results including wilderness declaration options. Provisionally identified wilderness will also be considered in finalising the RFA. Wilderness has also been measured according to the ‘JANIS’ criteria based on the National Wilderness Inventory (NWI). The criterion is to reserve 90 per cent or more of the region’s high quality wilderness, defined as NWI wilderness with a minimum rating of 12 and minimum area requirements. There are 860,500 hectares of this wilderness in the RFA region, of which 358,750 hectares is in the South-Coast sub-region and 501,750 is in the Tumut sub-region. Eighty-seven per cent of wilderness occurs in existing reserves across the RFA region, including 77 per cent in the South Coast sub-region and 94 per cent in the Tumut sub-region. Indigenous interests Forested landscapes contain much evidence of Aboriginal use of and spiritual link to the land, which can be protected through: • the protection of Aboriginal sites and artefacts; and • the maintenance of natural forest values.
Wilderness. The term ‘‘Wilderness’’ means the Devil’s Staircase Wilderness des- ignated by section 2202(a).
