The 23 Conservation Management Zones of Australia are geographic areas, classified according to their ecological and threat characteristics. The zones are also aligned with the Interim Biogeographic Regionalisation of Australia.
The Conservation Management Zones provide a way of understanding Australia’s natural environment that will assist in long-term conservation planning and help the Australian Government to better design, deliver and report on Natural Resource Management (NRM) investments, including improving alignment of national NRM priorities with local action.

Information profiles have been developed for each zone. They provide simple and readily accessible information about the environment and regional demographics. The information is designed to support Australians of all ages and backgrounds to engage with, understand and manage Australia’s unique biodiversity and landscapes.
