Our progress

The University properties in Tasmania are regularly assessed for natural values and threats using the Natural Values Atlas and the LIST Map (Land Information System Tasmania), an online geographic information tool that enables the viewing of geographical information and data points at state-wide scale in Tasmania. The LIST is managed by Land Tasmania, a Division of Department of Primary Industries, Parks, Water and Environment (DPIPWE).

The most recent assessment occurred in early 2019. It includes natural values of conservation concern and its main threats, including flora, fauna, and plant communities that are threatened in Tasmania, as well as invasive flora and fauna, protected areas, and sea level rise risk found at University properties and within 500m of the property boundaries.

You can browse the list of completed Sustainability Integration Program for Students (SIPS)  projects, grants and awards to find initiatives that have helped UTAS promote and conserve biodiversity and the natural environment.
