Biodiversity conservation underlies both economic and ecological sustainability, supports health and well-being and builds resilience against a changing climate.  The theme for International Biodiversity Day 2016, “Mainstreaming Biodiversity“, is a reminder that biodiversity considerations need to be integrated across a wide range of government, business and individual decisions.

Here are our suggestions on five key things the Federal Government can do,  the State Government can do, and we can all do, to mainstream biodiversity and improve biodiversity conservation in Tasmania:

Federal Government

Tasmanian Government

All of us

And, one last thing we can all do… donate to local and national organisations working to protect biodiversity (including EDO Tasmania!)
