In 2013, Environment Tasmania was a signatory to the historic 'Forests Peace Deal' formally know as The Tasmanian Forest Agreement. The peace deal secured an 172,000ha extension to Tasmania's Wilderness World Heritage Area. It also legislated for roughly 330 hectares of Tasmania's highest conservation value forests to be protected as reserves.
Here is the original report identifying the areas we believed needed to be protected for future generations, and why they are so valuable from a global conservation perspective. The report was produced with our allies, The Wilderness Society and The Australian Conservation Foundation.
