TLC at the forefront of national private nature conservation

TLC CEO Jane Hutchinson has accepted a $130,000 grant from NAB on behalf of the Australian Land Conservation Alliance (ALCA).

The TLC is one of five founding organisations that constitute ALCA in its role as a national voice for private land conservation.

The grant will support a significant scaling up of ALCA to a stand-alone entity that leads a network of most of Australia’s major conservation organisations, to achieve a greater collective impact.

The TLC has been involved with ALCA since its inception, and represents one of the many ways we are helping achieve goals of Tasmania becoming a global leader in nature conservation.

The grant was awarded to Ms Hutchinson – who is also the Chair for ALCA – at the 2018 Women in Conservation Breakfast in Melbourne on March 1.

Hosted by Bush Heritage Australia and Trust for Nature, the event celebrated the achievements of women working across conservation, while allowing for like-minded professionals to incubate ideas and collaborations.

We congratulate all those who have helped create a network of privately protected areas across Australia, and thank our supporters – without them none of this would be possible!
