What We Do
The Tasmanian National Parks Association Inc (TNPA) is a non-profit, non-government organisation committed to the protection of Tasmania’s national parks and reserved lands. We reinforce public values, concerns and criticisms to policy makers and managers, while promoting conservation awareness. The TNPA is an Australian Registered Charity.
The primary aims of the Tasmanian National Parks Association are:
“National Park” means any National Park, State Reserve, Nature Reserve, Game Reserve, Conservation Area, Nature Recreation Area, Regional Reserve, Historic Site, Sanctuary or any public lands or marine areas reserved for conservation in Tasmania.
The Tasmanian National Parks Association is an incorporated association and is governed by our constitution.

“If we are going to preserve the greatness of our national parks they must be held inviolate. They represent the last stand of the primitive. If we are going to whittle away at them we should recognise from the very beginning that all such whittlings are cumulative, and that the end result will be mediocrity. Greatness will be gone.”
