TLC Projects

The Tasmanian Land Conservancy (TLC) aims to protect areas of high conservation values for species which are not adequately protected.  Small but crucial parts of the jigsaw, which contribute to the TLC's primary goal – the creation of a network of natural areas that truly deliver long-term security for our native species and ecosystems.

Nature Photographers Tasmania supports the TLC through field trips to acquire photos highlighting the beauty and natural features they work so hard to protect.  To date, field trips to the Vale of Belvoir, Skullbone Plains, the Blue Tiers and Gordonvale have resulted in a considerable photographic resource for promotion of the TLC, land it manages and protects and a number of photographic exhibitions.

Forest Conservation Projects

Several trips have been undertaken by NPT members to areas threatened by forestry operations including Weld Valley, Florentine Valley and Butlers Gorge.  Images from these field trips have been used extensively in publications, public meetings and exhibitions to promote awareness of these places.

Nature Photographers Tasmania is a member group of Environment Tasmania, a not-for-profit conservation council dedicated to the protection, conservation and rehabilitation of Tasmania's natural environment.  Environment Tasmania represents more than 20 groups, with collective representation of over 5000 Tasmanians.

In addition to providing comment on other Environment Tasmania projects, a representative of NPT has been involved in the ongoing negotiations as part of the Tasmanian Forests Intergovernmental Agreement (IGA).
