Mangroves in Sydney Olympic Park supporting biodiversity

Biodiversity

Sydney Olympic Park supports a rich natural environment that includes over 250 native animal species, over 400 native plant species and three endangered ecological communities.

The high ecological values of the Park have resulted in 304 hectares (nearly half of the Park) being zoned under NSW planning legislation for environmental conservation and management.

Key habitats include:

  • estuarine and freshwater wetlands
  • remnant eucalypt forest
  • saltmarsh meadows
  • woodland bird habitats

What can you do to assist in habitat management and monitoring?
