We assist the Parks and Wildlife Service to care for, manage and promote the Tinderbox Marine Reserve and the value of Marine Reserves generally throughout Tasmania.

Where we work

Tinderbox Marine Reserve is an important marine reserve along the coast at Tinderbox, south of Hobart. The Reserve contains some very diverse marine flora (algae), and spectacular maine wildlife, including  soft corals, sea whips and sea pens, octopus and squid, sea urchins and sea stars, crabs and lobsters, stingrays, sea dragons and sea horses, along with resident fish species and pelagic fish passing through. The fish life support a number of special birds that nest along the shore, including the white-breasted sea eagle and fairy penguin. The forest in the coastal reserve also supports the endangered forty-spotted pardalote.
