A list from the Tasmanian Land Conservancy, for World Environment Day (5 June)
Happy World Environment Day! Is there a better place than Tasmania if you love to be in nature? Has anywhere else produced so many wonderful books about the great outdoors? From the photography of Olegas Truchanas to the poetic musings of Bob Brown; from wild eats to wild walks; there is a host of non-fiction that can get you out into the state’s wild places even when you’re stuck at home. But have you considered dipping into fiction to get a richer appreciation of nature? Tasmania is the setting for a slew of recent novels where mountains, lakes, forests and animals are characters as important as the human protagonists. Pull on your fleece, dust off your boots, and get reading.
Jane Rawson, who put together this list, is the communications coordinator at the Tasmanian Land Conservancy (TLC). The TLC purchases and protects land of high conservation value throughout Tasmania. If you would like to help the TLC establish a reserve that will protect swift parrots and forty spotted pardalotes at Tinderbox Hills, south of Hobart, visit the www.tasland.org.au/donate-now.
