Protected Areas on Private Land Program
The Protected Areas on Private Land Program (PAPL) is a joint initiative between the National Reserve System Program, the Department and the Tasmanian Land Conservancy.
The PAPL program aims to contribute to Tasmania and Australia’s Comprehensive, Adequate and Representative (CAR) Reserve System by promoting and facilitating voluntary Conservation Covenants between the Tasmanian Government and landowners with important natural values on their properties. Natural values of interest include under-reserved vegetation communities, freshwater values, threatened species and geoconservation areas.
The PAPL program is particularly interested in areas that are greater than ten hectares in size and are in good condition - vegetation that has a diversity of species, has limited management issues such as weeds, and ideally is linked to other areas of native bush.
Private landowners play a very important role in efforts to conserve Tasmania’s unique natural values.
Through PAPL, the Tasmanian Government is inviting landowners to become partners in the Focal Landscapes Project. Landowners are able to sign on with various levels of commitment, from non-binding Land for Wildlife membership, to formal, binding conservation agreements such as Conservation Covenants. The new PAPL flyer provides a general overview of the project.
