This chapter brings together available data on Environmental heritage which, for the purpose of this publication, covers Zoological parks and aquariums, Botanic gardens and, Nature parks and reserves. While recent data are available on people's attendance and work involvement in areas of Environmental heritage, little exists on the economic activity of the organisations which operate and maintain Zoological parks and aquariums, Botanic gardens and Nature parks and reserves.

Apart from details on government funding of these activities, which is collected annually by the ABS via the Cultural Funding by Government survey, the most recent data on the activity of Botanic gardens organisations comes from a survey conducted in 1999-2000. However, it is necessary to go back to 1996-97 for details on organisations responsible for Zoological parks and aquariums and, Nature parks and reserves. Data from Botanic Gardens, Australia, 1999-2000 (cat. no. 8563.0) and Zoos, Parks and Garden Industry, Australia, 1996-97 (cat. no. 8699.0) are available through the ABS website.
