The TLC assists landowners to protect critical ecological values on their own properties through a range of programs that include:
The Tasmanian Land Conservancy works with the state and Australian federal governments via this programme to facilitate conservation covenants contributing to the national reserve system on private land. Read more »
Our work with Roaring 40s and landowners protected primary nesting sites for wedge-tailed (Aquila audax fleayi) and white-bellied sea eagles (Haliaeetus leucogaster). Read more »
The commonwealth government funded Woodland Bird Project, was a national project driven by BirdLife Australia, Nature Conservation Trust NSW, Trust for Nature Victoria and the TLC. It has been an outstanding success with a total of over 660 hectares of priority woodland bird habitat now protected by permanent covenants. Read more »
With over 40% of the state already protected by magnificent reserves, Tasmania is superbly placed to develop one of the world's leading protected area /reserve systems that provides sufficient habitat for the long-term survival of our biodiversity.
Nevertheless, almost 700 flora and fauna species are in danger of extinction. Many of these live in the warmer and more fertile habitats where there is a greater proportion of private land and fewer reserves. Active conservation management on private land is critical.
The TLC strategy is to build a system of secure core areas managed for conservation—essentially a network of biodiversity assets—which are sufficient to keep ecosystems functioning at a basic level.
In many cases the most effective approach is to work closely with the existing owners of the land to establish private reserve areas managed formally for conservation.
