Green Guardians Program

Travel Tasmania in natural balance

Tasmanian Expeditions is proud to be working with the Tasmanian Parks & Wildlife Service (TPWS) on the Green Guardians Program. The Green Guardians Program entails active encouragement of both our travellers and guides to engage in small scale conservation projects whilst on holiday in Tasmania with us. The three projects that Tasmanian Expeditions will be focused on in the coming season are;

  • Weed removal on the Franklin River. The primary focus will be upon Blackberry eradication though other weeds are also on the list. We will provide GPS coordinates of infestation sites that will be recorded and monitored by the TPWS
  • Birdlife surveys and ID on sections of the South Coast Track. Raising awareness of threatened species and impacts of human interaction. Again information and co-ordinates will be recorded to fill in the ‘blanks’ for information on birdlife in Tasmania. Most of Tassie’s coastline has been surveyed for information on species habitat and numbers but the south Coast is devoid of information at present so it will be of great benefit to Parks and the wider scientific community for us to help gather information in this area.
  • Rubbish collection and classification on the South Coast Track. We have agreed to store extra barrels at our second food drop for rubbish collection along the coastline. Once again this is aimed to raise awareness of the impacts of plastics etc breaking down and entering the food chain through consumption by seabirds and other marine life.

By travelling with Tasmanian Expeditions on the Franklin River or the South Coast Track you are choosing to help guard our previous wilderness regions. For more information visit the Tasmanian Parks & Wildlife Service website.
