Summary

This project was established in response to changing levels of resources and increasing pressures on the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area (TWWHA) management.

The project sought to explore opportunities to build on existing partnerships and seek new avenues for support for managing the WHA from the community. A team of four consultants, Bob Tyson, Helen Dunn, Tony Hocking and Anna Housego undertook a wide-ranging investigation into possible partnerships with the WHA. Their report found there is enthusiasm and commitment across Tasmania to develop partnerships through a variety of means including corporate sponsorship, volunteers, research, Aboriginal communities, etc.

Key recommendations include an increased focus on research partnerships, development of the concept of a foundation to attract corporate support and further refinement of the WHA brand.
