Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area Plan Limited Review Update


In December 2004 the Parks and Wildlife Service (PWS) commenced a limited, mid-term review of the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area management plan 1999.

It had been the PWS's intent to review the issues and develop a table of changes to the 1999 management plan and release this for public comment mid 2005. This timetable has been delayed due to other work commitments and we are now working to release the draft plan for comment during October 2005 - our apologies for the delay.
