BirdLife Tasmania’s joint project wins

BirdLife Tasmania’s joint project with Tasmanian DPIPWE and CSIRO to develop a risk assessment tool to help prioritise adaptation and mitigation activities for coastal species at risk from projected sea-level rise. This project received an award at the National Climate Change Adaptation Research Facility (NCCARF) national conference in Adelaide in July. The decision tool will help land managers prioritise coastal sites that help mitigate the impacts of sea level rise on coastal natural values. We are also proud to be a national Landcare finalist for our work on shorebirds with SERSA in South East Tasmania for the second time in seven years.
