Protecting our natural resources
Collaborative action for healthy landscapes and seascapes, protected natural values, and sustainable livelihoods and lifestyles.
We work to keep the natural and productive landscapes of south-eastern Tasmania healthy over the long term. We play a key role in building partnerships, securing and directing investment, connecting knowledge and expertise to action and increasing the capacity of others to engage in NRM activities.
Tasmania’s southern region covers 2.5 million hectares of land and is bounded by the Southern Ocean. It is recognised globally for its healthy, intact and diverse natural landscapes and productive land and seascapes. Our region’s wealth of natural resources underpins southern Tasmania’s identity as well as its economic, social, and environmental wellbeing.

Cat Management Actions for Eastern Quoll on Bruny Island
Feral cats have contributed to the extinction of at least 22 Australian mammal species since colonisation and are continuing to drive biodiversity declines across Australia. Removing cats on a landscape scale remains an ongoing challenge in Australian conservation. Islands such as Bruny Island can be valuable safe havens for biodiversity. Island-based cat management programs that work towards eradication can have lasting positive outcomes for wildlife in these landscapes.Learn More100%Complete
Farming Forecaster Tasmania – Supporting Farmers for Drought Resilience
The increasing occurrence of drought in parts of Tasmanian including the midlands, Derwent catchment and Tasmania’s east coast has significantly reduced seasonal ground cover. Without adaptive measures, these declines will lead to increased soil erosion and soil carbon loss, and a decline in viability of dryland grazing systems. This project aims to help address some of these issues by supporting farmers with more responsive planning tools to improve dryland pasture management decision-making.Learn More20%Complete
