The Wild Bushwalking Tracks cause was established following a significant donation to support the management and maintenance of remote, spectacular wilderness walks in Tasmania’s parks and reserves from Alan and Hilary Wallace. The Wild Bushwalking Tracks supports projects dealing with one or more of the following themes:
- management and maintenance of wilderness walks
- track maintenance on more remote wilderness tracks
- hut and camping facility maintenance
- education for wilderness walkers
- on-track walker information
Wildcare Tasmania currently takes a $0 admin fee from donations. We know that a $0 fee is rare and we work hard to maintain this. When interest rates are very low, maintaining a $0 fee becomes challenging and we review the situation ongoing. If you would like to support us, please know that your donation helps. You can also help by joining us as a member.
Donations to Wildcare Tasmania are managed in accordance with our status as a Registered Environmental Organisation. Grant applications are invited from Wildcare volunteer groups and organisational partners, at least twice per year to ensure that money is getting out onto the ground where needed. Applications are assessed by the Wildcare Grants Assessment Committee; a group of highly qualified people who are passionate about Tasmania’s wild places and wildlife. This governance process means that donors are able to claim a tax deduction for donations.
