Dear Lindsay,

As fires burn across Tasmania, the TLC’s thoughts are with the communities directly affected.

On behalf of all of us at the TLC, we express our deep concerns and well wishes to those experiencing hardship as a result of such unprecedented fires.

The TLC’s Gordonvale and Five Rivers reserves have been directly impacted by the fires in the south-west and central plateau. Our dedicated team has been working alongside relevant agencies and local communities contributing to the firefighting efforts. We wish to sincerely thank fire crews from the Tasmanian Fire Service, Parks and Wildlife Service, volunteers and local landholders that are giving their all to control these fires and limit their further impact.

We will continue to provide updated information on the impact of fires in the TLC’s reserves via our social media pages. We have also shared an article via our blog with more information on how our teams are responding to both the immediate threats and long-term ecological changes from fire in these landscapes.

As always, we thank you for your ongoing support of the TLC and commitment to nature conservation in Tasmania.

Best regards,

James Hattam
Chief Executive Officer
