A Bush Retreat for Nature Lovers
Base Camp Tasmania is the base from which Tasmanian Wilderness Experiences provides commercial bushwalking and nature conservation experiences in southern Tasmania having commenced operations in 2003. In 2008 our property was granted a Restrictive Covenant (Protected Areas on Private Land) and subsequently in 2013 our property was listed as a wildlife sanctuary with the Wildlife Land Trust by the Humane Society International in an effort to preserve and protect our vital native habitats and the animals that depend on them Our Landcare activities are based on protecting and managing our 41 hectares of covenanted land, which is legally binding on the current and any future owners. The purpose of the Covenant is to protect the Natural Values of the land (the variety of all life-forms that are native to the land, including plants, animals and micro-organisms, the genes they contain and the eco-systems of which they are part, and the processes which maintain them). Our covenant requires us to refrain from activities on, or in relation to, the Land which will cause damage to, or degradation of, the Natural Values. We have also invested in infrastructure for the care and orphaned wildlife and their rehabilitation to the bush. After successful rearing and release at Base Camp Tasmania, these animals generally remain close by and provide many opportunities for viewing them in their natural state. Our work with animals is as registered Wildlife Carers. TWE’s Climate Change Policy seeks to mitigate the effects of carbon emissions arising from our transport services.
This information is provided for people to contact member groups about their community Landcare activities. Anyone wishing to distribute information generally to groups should contact Landcare Tasmania with their request.
