The process of natural area management commences with a vision, progresses through planning and allocating resources, and culminates in a range of outcomes (Hockings et al, 2000). Management to conserve natural heritage involves assessing the significant qualities of an area, and ensuring the survival or restoration of these qualities, ideally in a self-sustaining condition rath er than one that requires continual intervent ion. Achieving this end typically requires protection of functioning natural systems, rather than merely localized features and sites (AC IUCN,2002).
