Mission and Objectives

Our MISSION is:
To secure a publicly-owned sanctuary of national significance for the whole of North Head, that is managed predominantly as a protected environment for its natural attributes; that celebrates our Indigenous, immigration and military heritage; and that provides a place of learning, research and contemplation.

Our OBJECTIVES are:
* to become a "flagship sanctuary" by using world's best practice for conservation of geomorphology, flora, fauna (including the marine environment) and preservation of cultural heritage.
* to ensure recovery of threatened species on and near North Head.
* to include in the Sanctuary all publicly owned land on North Head.
* to gain the approval and support of all levels of Government.
* to secure sources of funding for the Sanctuary.
* to facilitate the identification, interpretation, preservation and celebration of the heritage of Indigenous people at North Head.
* to preserve and celebrate our immigration heritage at North Head.
* to preserve and celebrate our military heritage at North Head.
* to facilitate learning associated with the natural and cultural attributes of North Head.
* to facilitate research associated with the natural and cultural attributes of North Head.
