Our Living Landscapes Program is where our forests work gets hands-on.
It's about two key things - restoring precious forests that have been damaged, and connecting people with nature.
Environment Tasmania's teams are working with local communities to restore logged areas back to native forest. We’re also working to build and restore walking tracks – so that the community can get out and connect with these special places. Our Living Landscapes program is good for the community, good for endangered wildlife, and great for local tourism business.
Living Landscapes Symposium
We held a symposium to highlight and share information about the unique role ecological restoration has in regards to initiating both positive environmental and social outcomes.
Our World Heritage Area restoration work
Environment Tasmania's restoration work is focused on seven areas within the new World Heritage extension that were logged before the paperwork protecting these ancient forests went through. Our World Heritage work is unique and one of the most significant forest restoration projects in Australia. Click here for more.
Environment Tasmania is working with local communities around the state to build and repair walking tracks in high conservation value forests. Our projects include the Blue Tier Giant Walk, Higgs and Warner’s Tracks in the Great Western Tiers and Lake Skinner in the South East. There are heaps of opportunities to get involved.

Our Skyline Tier restoration work
Our Skyline Tier project was started by one of our passionate member groups and has grown to become one of the most significant plantation restoration programs in Australia. The project is creating significant ecological benefits, at the same time as creating jobs and uniting the local community around their love of nature. Click here for more.
This project is supported by Environment Tasmania through funding from the Australian Government.
