We have a proud history of conservation outcomes in Tasmania including establishing the Mt Wellington Reserve, playing an pivotal role stopping the Super Trawler and Tamar Valley Pulp Mill as well as countless local projects.
Tasmania's beautiful and unique natural values are currently under threat from expanded development, clearing and increased threats from invasive species such as feral cats and spiny sea urchins.

Stop the Expansion of Fish Farms
Tasmania has a large number of inshore fish farms that produce Atlantic Salmon and Ocean Trout. Fecal waste drifts out of the fish farms, along with excess nutrient feed. This causes a range of issues including de-oxygenation of the water and local environmental pollution. This pollutes areas of Tasmania's coastline, damaging valuable habitat and introducing disease into fish native fish stocks.
Protect Threatened Species
One of the biggest threats to native Tasmanian wildlife is the use of 1080 poison. The Tasmanian Conservation Trust is calling for a total ban on the use of 1080 to kill native wildlife. Alternative non-lethal methods of controlling native wildlife on farmland are widely available. TCT works with the state government to assist farmers in applying these methods.
Our recent cat containment survey found that a majority of people support cat containment. This is for the cat's own safety and for the safety of our native wildlife. However, many cat owners identified barriers to containing their cats including cost and difficulty of building an enclosure. By donating to this project you can help cat owners access practical guides, expert advice and subsidised materials to build cat enclosures.
Save Old Growth Forests
One of the biggest threats to Tasmania's old growth forests is clear felling on private land. There are over 800,000 hectares of untouched forest and native vegetation that we must work together to protect. We aim to work with the farmers and other land owners to ensure they protect their forests and have the resources to manage them to reduce threats. Many farmers and other land owners are doing great work to protect forests on their land. If given some assistance many more land owners can also protect their forests and manage the threats.
