Department for Environment and Water

Our purpose is to help South Australians conserve, sustain and prosper. It�s a big role, and we need passionate people to help us achieve it. We help our environment stay healthy. We manage water for the future, respond to climate change, connect people to nature and sustain our state�s natural resources. We take a whole-of-landscape approach to conserving native species and vegetation, working with primary producers, Aboriginal people, land managers, conservationists, communities and all levels of government. We also protect against fire and flood. We help keep the economy healthy. It is our clean environment that produces the premium food and wine that our state is known for � and contributes $18.2 billion per year to our economy. We connect people to nature. SA�s unique environment provides places for adventure, exercise, congregation and relaxation. We look after iconic sites including Cleland Wildlife Park, Seal Bay and Naracoorte Caves, part of the nature-based tourism industry that generates around $5.3 billion each year for our state. At DEW, we truly believe we make a difference. Our people are passionate about what they do. Working together, we are tackling some big challenges to help care for South Australia now and into the future. Feedback and complaints: We welcome your comments, suggestions and complaints.
