Tasmania’s 2nd State of the Environment (SoE) report, tabled earlier
this week, is now available to the public on CD, with a launch viewing
featuring Tasmania’s coastal environment at this week’s Coast to Coast
Tasmania has more coastline per unit land area than any other State in
Australia—about 4,900 km, not including Macquarie Island (Australian
Surveying and Land Information Group 1993). No place in Tasmania is
more than 115 km from the sea and most population centres and major
industries are on, or near, the coast. The principal landmass is
surrounded by islands, covered with bays and estuaries.
Created by the Resource Planning and Development Commission, the SoE
Report details key issues affecting Tasmania's environment.
It is designed for the community and policy makers, to help in
decision-making across government. It is also intended for scientists,
students and resource managers who need summary information and
perspectives from other disciplines.
A large-format interactive viewing of the CD will be available all day
tomorrow at the conference.
Venue: Hotel Grand Chancellor
Interview times: 11:00 am each day at the media centre.
Other times by arrangement.
The Coast to Coast 2004 online media centre provides details of all
media highlights and background information
