journal contributionposted on 2023-11-02, 06:20 authored by BW Davis
A conservation program for Western Tasmania is out lined, involving a regional resource inventory, structure planning processes, a land-use classification system and public participation in decision -making. The program could be initiated by the local community on a "self-help" basis, but if the program is to have any sustained impact, then formal institutional arrangements will be required, involving State finance and assistance. In executing the conservation program, attempts should be made to incorporate aesthetic values and resource management principles into research and administrative processes.
