The Parks and Wildlife Service is working to develop a fire management plan for the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area as required by the 2016 Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area Management Plan.
The development of the plan was also a recommendation of the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area Bushfire and Climate Change Research Project (Recommendation 1).
The TWWHA Fire Management Plan will provide a strategic and comprehensive management framework for guiding fire management and mitigating bushfire risk into the future.
The Fire Management Plan is a non-statutory subsidiary plan to the 2016 Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area Management Plan.
