Draft Aboriginal Lands Amendment Bill

September 19th, 2023|

The consultation draft of this Bill misses an opportunity to facilitate benefits to both Aboriginal people's well-being and conservation land management, even though it proposes to enable reserved land to be declared Aboriginal land under the Aboriginal Lands Act 1995.

Trout in the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area

September 1st, 2023|

Where introduced trout have successfully established themselves the ecological damage has been done and cannot be undone. This makes the protection of the ecological integrity of the remaining trout-free waters in the TWWHA and elsewhere in Tasmania all the more important.

Tourism Strategy

July 16th, 2023|

We welcome the acknowledgement of the finite capacities of our natural areas and recommendations for research to understand “carrying capacity, cumulative impact, limits and thresholds”. Our major concern is the disconnect between this call for evidence-based planning and the unchallenged emphasis throughout the rest of the Key Directions Paper on growing visitor numbers.

Lake Malbena: Latest process lacks integrity

May 3rd, 2023|

The latest submission from the proponent of a helicopter-accessed tourism development at remote Lake Malbena, seeking federal approval, has not engaged with the concerns of the 1000s of stakeholders who wrote to him last year, and the whole process lacks integrity due to his treatment of these representations.
