TWWHA Biosecurity Strategy 2021-2031

Biosecurity is one of the most important aspects of managing the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area (TWWHA) for the preservation of its Outstanding Universal Value. 

Many TWWHA values are at significant risk from invasive organisms, and this risk is likely to increase with changing climate and environmental conditions, increased visitation, and management activities. 

The TWWHA Biosecurity Strategy 2021-2031 ​identifies seven goals to address biosecurity risks in the TWWHA. The associated actions, including achievement pathways, aim to minimise the threat of invasive organisms on TWWHA values by improving leadership, planning, communication, documentation, training and education, research, compliance, and emergency response.
