The number and scope of research projects involving TLC land continues to grow, including through our involvement with the Protected Area Learning Research Collaboration.

Our work to understand the impact of fallow deer on the environment, and our ongoing involvement with feral cat management, have been supported by Honours projects on our reserves through various partnerships - including a successful Australian Research Council Linkage grant with UTAS and the New South Wales Department of Primary Industries.

The TLC’s involvement with the Protected Areas Learning and Research Collaboration continues to grow capacity for effective management and governance of protected areas in Australia, Asia and the Pacific. The Collaboration is a TLC-supported tertiary and vocational education and research initiative dedicated to natural and cultural heritage protection, stewardship and conservation management and capacity development that facilitates and coordinates protected areas research and disseminate research findings.
