The Tasmanian Land Conservancy (TLC) are proposing to make a visit to work on the Egg Islands Reserve
and will be seeking the assitance of the LBT volunteers and vessels to make there way there and back on Sat 24th July and 28th Aug.
 
For those not aware of the TLC the following information might be useful:

 "The TLC is a not-for-profit, apolitical, science and community-based organisation that raises funds from the public to protect irreplaceable sites and rare ecosystems
by buying and managing private land in Tasmania. All donations of $2 or more are tax deductible. "

About the Tasmanian Land Conservancy

The Tasmanian Land Conservancy (TLC) was established in 2001 with $50 in the bank and a handful of committed volunteers.
Since then, we have grown to be one of Tasmania’s largest private landholders. We protect and manage nature on our own land,
and we work alongside other committed landholders to help them identify, protect and manage nature on their properties.
Through science, community and enduring commitment, we inspire and empower people to conserve nature in Tasmania; we do this for the benefit of current
and future human generations and for nature itself. The TLC is largely supported by donations from the public – we are science-based, community focused and apolitical.

The TLC has established 23 nature reserves covering around 1,600 hectares of the state, where habitat and species are monitored, managed and protected forever.
Near Franklin, the TLC has its Egg Islands Reserve, in the Huon River. More recently, the TLC has established reserves at Tinderbox Hills, near Hobart, and on the Prosser River between Buckland and Orford.

In addition, around 40,000 hectares of Tasmania is owned by landholders who work with the TLC to protect and promote nature on their land through programs like Land for Wildlife, the Midlands Conservation Fund and the Revolving Fund, a program where the TLC buys land, protects it with a covenant, and re-sells it to conservation-minded landholders.
