From rivulets to estuaries, saltmarshes to the sea, the coasts and waterways in Southern Tasmania are a vital part of a healthy, productive environment and we work in a number of ways – and with several organisations – to protect both these special sites and the species that rely on them.
The majority of the population in the southern region live near our waterways, which makes managing impacts a vital, but challenging activity. The focus of our work includes minimising impacts on marine, coastal, estuarine and riparian environments across the region. We do this by working with a range of partners including; state and local government, community groups, public and private land managers, the scientific community and researchers, the indigenous community as well as business and industry to drive effective on-ground action, collaborative projects and support the community with knowledge and information.
D’Entrecasteaux and Huon Collaboration The Collaboration is a local partnership of stakeholders who use and care about the D’Entrecasteaux and lower Huon estuary. NRM South is one of several funding partners who ensure the continuation of this collaboration.
