Conservation on Private Land
“Building partnerships with landowners for the sustainable management and conservation of natural values across the landscape”
The Department, the agricultural sector and regional Natural Resource Management (NRM) Committees all acknowledge the key role of private landowners in conserving our natural diversity and the public and private benefits that flow from this approach. Capable land stewardship conserves the natural environment, providing benefits for future Tasmanians and visitors while enabling landowners to maintain market access and capitalise on new opportunities.
The Private Land Conservation Program aims to develop and encourage an integrated approach to private land management and planning that helps landowners fully benefit from the sustainable management of their properties’ natural diversity. We seek to achieve high level recognition of the biodiversity values of natural systems and the need to appropriately protect them and to support individuals who voluntarily manage these systems for conservation outcomes.
The PLCP provides a coordinated and targeted approach to the establishment of voluntary conservation agreements with private landowners. To this end, the program works with partners including landowners to deliver a variety of initiatives and shorter-term incentive programs.
These web pages detail the work of the program, highlight some of the conservation achievements of our partnerships, and provide easy access to information relevant to conservation on private land.
