A World Heritage Mission visited Tasmania in 2008 to assess the impact of forestry operations on the values of the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area (TWWHA).

The TNPA called for a comprehensive review and holistic consideration of TWWHA boundaries and management. The inadequacy of the existing TWWHA boundary, need for additional areas with World Heritage values to be added to the TWWHA, and inadequate existing management were all highlighted.

The Tasmanian National Parks Association offers an independent voice for Tasmania’s national parks and reserves, to ensure they are managed for the conservation of the values for which they were proclaimed.
