Budget cuts leaves Parks and Wildlife Service doing more with less

Media_release thumbnail
Tasmania’s Parks and Wildlife Service has taken another cut of more than $7 million in this year’s budget, continuing the downward trend in reserve management funding. It leaves the parks manager desperately underfunded at a time when the challenges of booming visitor numbers and climate change creates more work than ever.  
These cuts are contrasted against handouts for infrastructure and tourism projects that will leave the parks manager having to do more work, with less funding.
