The Office of Environment and Heritage (OEH) is a division of the NSW Department of Premier and Cabinet. OEH was formed on 4 April 2011 following an announcement of new administrative arrangements for the public service in NSW, which saw most of the functions of the Department of Environment, Climate Change and Water transferred to the new Office of Environment and Heritage. OEH is an environmental regulator and a manager of parks and gardens in NSW and develops and leads policy and reform in sustainability, biodiversity and native vegetation, coastal protection and Aboriginal cultural heritage. The Heritage Branch (from the former Department of Planning) is also now part of the OEH and it works with communities to identify important places and objects and provides guidance in looking after heritage items.In regulatory matters for environment protection, OEH acts under the powers of the statutory Environment Protection Authority (EPA) and its Board. The organisation also provides staff, services and other support to the Royal Botanic Gardens and Domain Trust, the NSW Environmental Trust and the Lord Howe Island Board.
The Department of Environment and Resource Management manages our environment and natural environment for the benefit of all Queenslanders.
From promoting sustainable living and resource use, strengthening our response to climate change and using the latest science to underpin decision making, we aim to deliver long-term sustainability for the State's natural environment.
By planning for, allocating and managing our natural resources in a way that considers social, economic and environmental outcomes we can support economic growth and maintain our natural environment for today and for future generations.
Our key responsibilities include:
Climate change-meeting the challenge,
Environment-conserving our natural and cultural heritage,
Land-managing our land wisely,
Water-securing water for Queensland's future.
The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) is responsible for South Australia's nature conservation, heritage conservation and animal welfare. We collect and provide information and knowledge about the state's environment. We manage the state's public land including national parks, marine parks, botanic gardens and the coastline. We also advise on environmental policy.
Primarily, the collections are of the Tasmanian fauna.
The Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery is making a range of species information and data from its natural history collections available through the Atlas of Living Australia.
