The conservation work performed on TLC permanent reserves and in our Hobart office is greatly enhanced by the assistance of our volunteer workforce. In 2011-2012 our volunteer labour saved the TLC over $165,000 in operating costs.
We gratefully acknowledge everyone who helps us to keep our costs as low as possible and also provide valuable expertise and help across all parts of our organisation.
Some examples of volunteering in action at the TLC include:
With the help of volunteers we perform a wide range of volunteer reserve management activities across all of our permanent reserves. Activities include ecological surveying, weed management, fencing, and rubbish removal.
Annually, since 2006 we have hosted teams of around 20 international students from North America who spend two weeks, in the Tasmanian winter, working hard on our permanent reserves. Their tremendous effort has helped us to substantially reduce gorse at Long Point permanent reserve. Read more >>
Our Board of 11 members is voluntary and with a wealth of experience in many aspects of environmental science, business, financial and legal expertise. We also have two sub committees, also comprised of volunteers; one to administer the Foundation and a second to provide advice to the board on scientific matters. Read more >>
Our Bush Blitz to Skullbone Plains in Tasmania’s central highlands was a huge success — with between 520 to 550 species of plants and animals collected during the week. Read more >>
We save substantial labour costs with the help of a wonderful team of volunteers who help to assemble our newsletter and appeal mailouts. Thank you to everyone who helps us be as efficient as possible with our fundraising and communications activities.
The fabulous images of our permanent reserves are often taken by a group of very talented professional photographers. These men and women give the TLC permission to use for our publications and web-site free of charge.
The Bookend Trust
During 2012 we have been very pleased to provide wilderness learning experiences for students participating in projects run by the Bookend Trust. Students have engaged in multi-day expeditions to TLC permanent reserves and helped maintain the natural values of our reserves.
