TPT volunteers work with our Partners to conserve, learn and share knowledge about Tasmanian threatened plants. We undertake on-ground recovery actions for priority species by conducting surveys and monitoring to improve knowledge and achieve conservation objectives.

Our Vision is for Tasmania’s unique and threatened flora to be preserved for future generations.

Who we are

TPT members undertake Field Trips to survey, monitor and manage threatened plants throughout Tasmania. These Field Trips are coordinated by the TPT Committee and TPT’s Partners. No prior experience is necessary to participate, at the beginning of each Field Trip the leader explains the purpose of the activity and shows photos or specimens of the plants that are the focus for the Field Trip.

TPT is founded in the ethos of knowledge-sharing between professionals and non-professionals alike, many of our members have had no prior experience with Tasmanian native plants, while others may be amateur or professional botanists. A willingness to learn and share is all that’s needed.

Where we work

We work with our partners on both reserved and private land across the state.

What we do

TPT volunteers have worked on some of the most critically endangered species in Tasmania over many years. Many are not commonly known by the general public, but some iconic species we have worked on include the Mienna Cider Gum, Morrisby’s Gum and Sagg Spider Orchid.

We have strong relationships with Partners across several sectors, from government threatened species regulators to private land managers, and many organisations in-between including, Threatened Species and Private Land Conservation Section of Department of Primary Industries Parks Water & Environment (DPIPWE), Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens (The Tasmanian Seed Conservation Centre & The Tasmanian Orchid Conservation Program), Tasmanian Parks and Wildlife Service, Local Councils, Wildcare, Landcare Tasmania, Tasmanian Land Conservancy and other land managers.
