Here is the FPS’s representation re the  draft 2014 Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area management plan.

Thanks to all those members who gave us some input into our representation.

The Mercury recently reported that there were about 7,600 representations.

We would encourage all members to keep lobbying state and federal politicians to ensure the highest standards for managing the TWWHA.

The link below takes you to the report our president, Elizabeth Perey, wrote for our AGM.


The Florentine Protection Society has always been aware of the importance of Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certification. Austra Maddox and Juliet Lavers have been our FSC delegates. This has involved learning as much as possible about the Forest Stewardship Council and representing FPS at relevant environment group meetings.  In late 2013 FSC International called for submissions regarding the standard for controlled wood. Austra Maddox made a submission on behalf of FPS. Thanks Austra.
