WILDCARE joins the team

This year the South West Marine Debris Cleanup is being run under the Wildcare Tasmania banner. This association ensures that the ongoing Marine Debris cleanup effort in the South West World Heritage Area can continue into the future. The South West Marine Debris project becomes one of many Special Programs run under the WILDCARE umbrella. In future cleanups Wildcare will allocate a limited number of rewards based positions on the cleanup. Each year Wildcare runs a variety of events throughout the state, to see whats happening in your area check out the Calendar of Events.

WILDCARE Inc is the largest and fastest growing incorporated environmental action group in Tasmania, with membership of around 3000. Wildcare undertakes volunteer work (around 100,000 hours per year) supporting natural and cultural heritage conservation and reserve management throughout the State. Work is undertaken in reserves, on private land and even in offices, in close partnership with a number of government agencies who have responsibility for managing our environment. Wildcare provides around $40,000 each year, from its own funds, through a Small Project Grants Scheme to support the volunteer activity that  members undertake.

Thanks WILDCARE without your support this trip would not be possible.
