Environment Tasmania



At the gateway to Antarctica, the island of Tasmania is home to some of the last remaining wild places on earth. Our mission is to protect these wild places and the clean air, water and natural resources all Tasmanians rely on.


Environment Tasmania is the conservation council - the peak group for environment organisations in the state. We're a not-for-profit, non-partisan campaigning organisation, with member groups active on issues ranging from climate change to marine protection.

ET is best known for leading the alliance that stopped the Super Trawler Margiris from fishing in Australian waters, and for our part in the Tasmanian Forest Agreement, which enabled us to deliver a 172,000-hectare extension to the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area.
