Newsletter No 27 – Spring 2018

October 12th, 2018|

Underlying most of the articles in this issue of TNPA News is the theme of the longstanding and ongoing struggle between those who strive to protect what is unique and special about Tasmania - its natural and cultural values and its way of life – and those who see in our wild places only opportunities for attaining personal wealth and/or power.

Newsletter No 26 – Autumn 2018

April 5th, 2018|

A theme that occurs in most of the articles in this issue of TNPA News is the pressure to ‘open up’ wild and undisturbed parts of Tasmania for so-called ecotourism developments.

Newsletter No 25 – Spring 2017

October 1st, 2017|

A theme common to a number of articles in this issue of TNPA News is that Tasmania is being ‘loved to death’. But maybe ‘love’ is not the appropriate word, ‘visited to death’ would be more apt, for ‘love’ implies care.
