The Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area (TWWHA) was inscribed on the World Heritage list in 1982.

The Natural Values Conservation Branch of the Department of Primary Industries, Parks, Water and Environment (DPIPWE) is responsible for an ongoing research and monitoring program to identify values and conservation requirements in the TWWHA. This work provides the very important foundation for managing the values of the area and for informing the public of these values.

Funding is provided by the Australian Government in collaboration with the Tasmanian Government.
