The Tasmanian environment and the future citizens of the state are the main beneficiaries of the conservation work of the TLC.
Projects in Progress
The TLC currently owns and manages 14 permanent reserves – land which we raise money to buy, and then manage in perpetuity. We are currently raising funds to support the reserve management and science projects across our permanent reserves. We operate a revolving fund to purchase land and re-sell as covenanted properties. The TLC also works with landowners to protect critical ecological values on their own properties.
Egg Islands Reserve, situated in the picturesque Huon Valley protects critical habitat for many threatened species including the endangered Australasian Bitten. A cryptic bird, with its shy habits, liking for densely vegetated wetland, and talent for camouflage, has a loud booming call, mainly heard at dusk and dawn. You can experience this spectacular reserve and lend a hand at some up coming weeding trips out to the islands in August.

How to Help
Wills and Bequests
The TLC view a bequest as profound gesture of commitment to the environment. All bequests to the TLC (unless otherwise specified) are held by the TLC Foundation and invested. Interest earned is used to directly fund the ongoing management of all TLC permanent reserves.
The prize for our #craftydevils competition at the Sustainable Living Festival this weekend is where you can find this little guy! A night-time tour of #bonorong for six people. The sanctuary generously donated this prize for us so we hope everyone pops into our stall (77) to check it out. #tasland #slf2013 #hobart
Donating is valuable way to show your ongoing support for the conservation and management of our TLC permanent reserves. Every donation to the TLC is highly valued.
As Christmas approaches and 2015 draws to a close, the TLC sends a huge thank you to all you supporters, donors, volunteers and friends who helped make this year so wonderful. From the protection of The Big Punchbowl to the launch of the Panatana campaign, with Tasmanian Australian of the Year thrown into the mix, it has been a great year for conservation in Tassie. This little scarlet robin (always in Christmas colours!) was snapped by Sarah Lloyd. Very best wishes to you all and see you in 2016. #tasland #tasmania #conservation #biodiversity #nature #birdwatching #discovertasmania #instatassie #hobartandbeyond #birdlovers #naturehub #naturegram #privateland #protectedarea #natureshots #naturelovers #australia #naturephotography #bushwalking #outside_project #exploreaustralia
