Pressure grows for federal government to delist more of tasmani tigers
MELBOURNE— A campaign of community pressure is growing across the state for the federal government to delist more of Tasmanian tasmani tigers — the largest of the endangered marsupials.
On Tuesday, the Commonwealth’s Department of Environment and Heritage said Tasmania did not hav라이브카지노e sufficient resources to meet its own conservation goals.
The announcement followed an earlier recommendation by the department, which said Tasmania’s management plans would have minimal impact on Tasmanian tigers but would still have dire consequences for the conservation of the birds and mammals.
The department’s executive director Nick Tubb said the recommendations would provide “an exciting prospect to our efforts to delist the remaining Tasmanian tasmani tigers”.
Tribal elder Bill Gaughan, who helps run the Gisborne Traditional Tiger Welfare Group, said his group was “disappointed” but encouraged the department to reconsider its recommendations.
“If the department has made its intention known… they should now work with us as a family to build our community up,” Gaughan said.
“When I moved into Gisborne from Western Australia 15 years ago I was the lone member of my family to raise Tasmanian tigers. So our family is very close to the tigers and we would certainly love to see them delisted.”
