Summary

When the first management plan for the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area was being developed, an insistent question kept emerging: ‘How would we know if management under the plan was actually achieving its objectives?’ To address this question, the Parks and Wildlife Service set out to develop a practical system for monitoring and evaluating the effectiveness of the management plan.
