Gardens for Wildlife

The Gardens for Wildlife scheme will now be delivered by the Tasmanian Land Conservancy Inc. (TLC).

The TLC also deliver the hugely successful Land for Wildlife (LFW) scheme which was started in Tasmania in 1998 by the then Department of Primary Industries, Parks, Water and Environment. 

Gardens for Wildlife started in 2008 for people whose property did not qualify for LFW (properties smaller than 2 hectare), or who lived in urban/suburban areas.  

Keeping the two schemes together with the TLC is a natural fit and the TLC are very keen to keep GFW going and growing and will provide great support to GFW members.
