Tasmanian Wetlands Strategy

The objective of this Strategy is to raise public awareness of the many values of wetlands and the threats that wetlands face. It also aims to provide strategic direction and a concerted response to improve their protection and management. The Strategy is a whole-of-government approach and, as such, represents a co-operative initiative between all relevant agencies.

Vital components of the Wetlands Strategy are:
  • integrated land use and catchment management.
  • community involvement and stewardship in wetland conservation and management.
  • greater co-operation and integration of decision making between State agencies, local government, and individual landholders.
