Management of the natural environment:

  • ensures the preservation of local flora and fauna;
  • controls or reduces development of the area for fishing, forestry, mining or agriculture; and
  • ensures areas involved are generally accessible to the public.

In 2001-02, there was $17.4m in Natural Heritage Trust (NHT) projects in Tasmania. Of this, the most funding was allocated to Bushcare projects ($5.9m), followed by Rivercare ($3.8m) and Landcare ($3.5m). Landcare and Bushcare had the largest number of projects, although both had decreased from the previous year (Landcare by 18 and Bushcare by 15).
