Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area Plan Limited Review


In December the Parks and Wildlife Service (PWS) is starting a limited, mid-term review of the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area (WHA) Management Plan. Reviewing a plan that covers 20% of Tasmania can be a major exercise, however because the plan was fully reviewed in 1999 and will be fully reviewed again in 2009, this mid-term review is more limited in scope. We are only looking to update critical issues, not review the plan's objectives, structure or broad management approach.

You are invited to contribute to the review. Please refer to our WHA Plan Review web pages for further details.
