The Australian authorities said today that an area almost equal to the British Greater London area of inland grazing land, will be converted into a national park to help protect threat species. The decision was backed by environmental groups.

The Naryala pasture (Narriearra Station) is located in the northwest of New South Wales (NSW), covering an area of 1534 square kilometers. The Great London area is 1579 square kilometers.

New south wells state environmental minister keane (Matt Kean) said it was the state's largest private land acquisition ever to build a national park.

Keene added that the scope of the new national park covers the floodplains, wetlands and landscape "seen in any national park in New South Wales ". Keane didn't disclose the amount of the purchase of the land.

"The Naryala pasture is an important refuge for threat wildlife and a safe haven for more than 25 species of threat animals, including the endangered species Greyhound (Grey Grasswren), which is located in nearly 90 per cent of the important habitat and breeding areas in New South Wales ," Keane said. 」

Keane also said the site also found aboriginal artifacts, tools and stone installation art, and the local aboriginal land association (Aboriginal Land Council) has been invited to name the national park.

WWF (World Wide Fund for Nature,WWF) supports the construction of the national park. "This new national park is an ambitious action needed to slow down and reverse the biodiversity extinction crisis ," said Stuart Blanch, who works the WWF Australia office. 」

But Blanche says more needs to be done in New South Wales. He also called on the government to hire indigenous people to help protect key sites and manage the land. (Translator: Li Wanjing / Nuclear Draft: Xu Chongzhe)
