Your donation is important
Your financial contribution helps us monitor and advocate for the environmental and conservation values of Tasmania’s national parks.
Donations over $2 are fully tax deductible.
To make it easy for you to donate we’ve created a safe and secure Give Now account, which makes it easy for people to donate to their favourite causes.
Despite the best efforts of our legal representatives, the Resource Management and Planning Appeal Tribunal (RMPAT) overturned the Central Highlands Council’s decision to refuse a permit for helicopter-accessed visitor accommodation at Halls Island, Lake Malbena in the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area.
We are not giving up on Lake Malbena! On 14 January 2020 we (TNPA, TWS and the same two individuals as previously) lodged an appeal in the Supreme Court of Tasmania in order to argue that RMPAT erred in relying on the Parks and Wildlife Service’s Reserve Activity Assessment of the Lake Malbena proposal.
We are pursuing this matter not only for Lake Malbena but also because it has major implications for the many other intrusive tourism developments currently being considered for Tasmania’s national parks under the State government’s secretive Expressions of Interest process. For background and a summary of the Lake Malbena issue, see here.
We will again be represented by the Environment Defenders Office. Despite this, legal fees are likely to be substantial. Your donation will help us to meet these costs and to protect Tasmania’s National Parks.
Donate to our Tasmanian Parks Guardian and Monitoring Program using the secure online platform Give Now.
