The Tasmanian Land Conservancy is passionate about conserving Tasmania's habitats and species.

The TLC is actively contributing to Tasmania becoming a world leader in nature conservation and sustainability.

To do this we maintain a team of experts and science innovators, guided by a skilled Conservation Science and Planning Advisory Council. We use rigorous scientific methods to guide reserve management and acquisition. We work with state and Commonwealth bodies, universities and community organisations – locally, nationally and internationally. TLC’s science strategy outlines our conservation priorities in the coming years.

The TLC is engaged in a range of science-based projects and collaborations across our reserves. Our feature projects can be viewed below.

The TLC fosters new research and partnerships to better understand natural values and how ecosystems function.
The TLC's Bird Conservation Fund combines evidence-based research and ecological monitoring with direct management actions ensuring effective and long-term conservation of our birds for generations to come.
The Bird Conservation Fund supports applied scientific research, via an annual postgraduate scholarship focusing on critical knowledge gaps in bird conservation across Tasmania.
Technology is revolutionising the way we can monitor wildlife, with devices such as motion-sensor cameras and smartphone applications now a standard feature in the ecological tool-kit. Incorporating these technologies with citizen-science can bring out the inner scientist in all of us.
The number and scope of research projects involving TLC land continues to grow.
Ecological monitoring helps us manage our reserves and build a bank of knowledge about their natural values.
