Environment Tasmania is the conservation council – the peak group for environment organisations in the state. We’re a not-for-profit, non-partisan campaigning organisation, with member groups active on issues ranging from climate change to marine protection.

ET is best known for leading the alliance that stopped the Super Trawler Margiris from fishing in Australian waters, and for our part in the Tasmanian Forest Agreement, which enabled us to deliver a 172,000-hectare extension to the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area.

Protecting Tasmania’s unique marine environment

Our current focus is on protecting our Tasmania’s marine environment from threats like intensive fish farming. See here for more details.

Living Landscapes Program

Our Living Landscapes Program is where our forests work gets hands-on. It is about restoring precious forests that have been damaged, and connecting people with nature. Our teams are working with local communities to restore logged areas back to native forest. We’re also working to build and restore walking tracks – so that the community can get out and connect with these special places. Our Living Landscapes program is good for the community, good for endangered wildlife, and great for local tourism business.

We held a symposium to highlight and share information about the unique role ecological restoration has in regards to initiating both positive environmental and social outcomes. Download the project brochure here.

Our World Heritage Area restoration work

Environment Tasmania’s restoration work is focused on seven areas within the new World Heritage extension that were logged before the paperwork protecting these ancient forests went through. Our World Heritage work is unique and one of the most significant forest restoration projects in Australia. Click here for more.

Wild Walks

Environment Tasmania is working with local communities around the state to build and repair walking tracks in high conservation value forests. Our projects include the Blue Tier Giant Walk, Higgs and Warner’s Tracks in the Great Western Tiers and Lake Skinner in the South East. There are heaps of opportunities to get involved.

Our Skyline Tier restoration work

The project is creating significant ecological benefits, at the same time as creating jobs and uniting the local community around their love of nature. Click here for more.
